Sgt. John Delaney told 22News narcotics detectives executed a raid on 147 Garland Street around 10:30 Monday morning after learning of a large “marijuana grow” operation taking place inside. According to Delaney, a search of the home turned up 168 marijuana plants in various stages of growth, two large bags of marijuana weighing roughly 23 pounds, $12,514 in cash, seven more large bags of marijuana ready for sale and a Mossberg 22 caliber rifle.
Police also reportedly found cultivation material including hydroponic lights, fertilizer, packaging materials and scales, as well as a large amount of fireworks.
The two people inside the home were arrested. Daniel Duncan, 31, and Diana Serrazina, 30, both of 147 Garland Street, were charged with manufacturing of a class “D” substance, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of a firearm and possession of ammo. Duncan and Serrazina are scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in Springfield District Court.
