COVENTRY TOWNSHIP, OH (WOIO) - A Coventry man accused of conducting an elaborate marijuana growing operation is out of business and locked up in jail.
Acting on a tip, the Summit County Drug Unit found 129 marijuana plants, in various stages of growth, at 2873 Upham Road in Coventry Township.
Several thousand dollars in marijuana growing equipment was also found in the home.
That search led investigators to 139 Lakota Drive. There they seized $20,000 in cash, a Cadillac, a Yamaha snowmobile, and a Ford van, several rifles, 24 marijuana plants and marijuana growing equipment.
Information at that address led investigators right next door. Police say that entire home was dedicated to growing and cultivating marijuana. Officials seized 45 bags, 1/2 lb. each, of marijuana along with several pounds of loose buds of marijuana, 325 plants in various stages of growth and several thousand dollars in marijuana growing equipment. This home had a stations set up throughout the house for trimming, drying and packaging the drug.
James Eubank, 47, of Coventry Township was arrested and charged with cultivation. Additional charges are expected.
