A man and woman were arrested over the weekend after police say they discovered an “intricate marijuana growing operation” in their College Station apartment.
Police said an officer was on patrol at the Brazos Point Apartment Complex off Welsh Avenue on Sunday when he tracked a disturbance that included yelling, banging and crashing sounds to an apartment, where the officer contacted Carlos Ramces Chaves-Urale and Angelica Marie Rodriguez.
According to the officer’s report, Chaves-Urale admitted to causing the commotion because he was upset over a video game. While talking with the pair, the officer smelled marijuana coming from the apartment, according to the police report.
After obtaining a search warrant for the apartment, officers reported finding marijuana plants growing in a bedroom closet along with equipment, soil, fertilizer, a homemade irrigation system, humidity gauges and more than 2 pounds of usable marijuana.
Chaves-Urale and Rodriguez were both charged with possession of more than 4 ounces of marijuana, a state jail felony punishable by up to two years in jail and a $10,000 fine, and tampering with evidence, a third-degree felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
