Aug. 22–A 58-year-old woman was arrested Tuesday afternoon when sheriff’s deputies found a suspected illegal marijuana grow, and evidence of a butane hash oil operation, at a Pueblo West home.
Debra Luck was arrested on suspicion of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, extraction of marijuana concentrate and cultivation of marijuana, according to a sheriff’s office news release.
On Monday morning deputies were called to her home, 368 Baldwyn Drive, by a tipster. When deputies arrived they found a large marijuana grow in a fenced area behind the home. Deputies contacted the occupant of the home, who admitted growing the weed and said it was a documented legal grow, according to the release.
“Deputies reviewed the paperwork and determined it was not valid,” the sheriff’s office said.
Deputies exited the yard and secured a search warrant on the property.
The backyard grow had 57 plants, worth and estimated $171,000, the sheriff’s office said. Deputies also discovered equipment and evidence of a butane hash oil operation.
Luck was booked into the Pueblo County Jail.
