“There was no way we could have anticipated this, Mr. Walters appeared to be very experienced in the trade, he had quite a system going. We believe this was going on for quite some time.” Sheriff John Matz
Also found in the home:
- Marijuana seeds
- Grow-operation items
- Digital scales
- Packaging materials
This is a local guy with no criminal history, not on any law enforcement's radar, nit a bad dude...But something/someone tipped them off on this giant operation. Sounds like he was just living his best life....annnddd growing lots of weed.
“It was very surprising to us based on the fact that he was not even on our radar as far as someone that we were looking at for distribution of narcotics. I would imagine that this is going to impact the supply of marijuana to our area.” - Sheriff John Matz
I would imagine that area is going to be "dry" for quite a while after a million dollars worth of weed has vanished. That's a lot in a not so big of town, eeks! His girlfriend was placed under arrest as well.
