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.

Obviously this was a "Hemp growing operation" and 2 lbs of hemp until tested for over 3% THC, C'mon Eagle keep up. Why does College Station need more police if we have some doing nothing so much that their looking for something to do, then calling every other one thats doing nothing to perform a search warrant for something that he just happen to stumble upon, heres another thing they smell burned marijuana all the time coming from apartments that gets reported and do nothing, and if the plain view and smell clause still applies. Why the warrant?.WASTE of time and resources to justify the budget.
