Agents uncovered a sophisticated growing operation in a Sugar Land house, arresting two men and seizing marijuana valued at $824,000, officials said.
Don Tien Nguyen, 40, of Sugar Land, and Duyet Nguyen, 41, of Houston, were arrested Friday after Fort Bend County narcotics investigators searched the residence at 3200 Summer Bay Drive. The men were charged with possession of marijuana.
The Fort Bend County Narcotics Task Force initiative composed of local and federal agencies executed a search warrant on the house and found a sophisticated indoor marijuana operation in five rooms of the house. The agents found 206 marijuana plants, indoor growing lights, scales, water pumps, fans, inverters and assorted equipment used for manufacturing, packaging and selling marijuana.
Both men were released on $50,000 bond from the Fort Bend County Jail Saturday.
