Eduardo Alvarez-Carillo, 44.
Officers discovered a hidden room within the home, located at 10150 NE 103 Lane in Bronson, and seized marijuana plants in various stages of development. Some were harvested and ready for sale while others were in the beginning stages of growth.
A total of 58 plants with a street value of $58,000 were seized.
During the investigation, police said, they discovered that the homeowner had been stealing thousands of dollars of electrical power to support the grow operation.
Additional charges may stem from that discovery.
