Man accused of growing marijuana in Spring Hill home

SPRING HILL — A 20-year-old man faces charges after Hernando County deputies discovered a small marijuana growing operation during a search of his mother's home.

Luis Joemar Baez was arrested and remained in the Hernando County Jail on Friday in lieu of $10,500 bail.

Baez, who is originally from Puerto Rico, faces charges of cultivation of marijuana, tampering with utility service and grand theft.

Detectives armed with a search warrant seized 37 marijuana plants from the home at 4301 Mariner Blvd. A search also found that a power line had been tapped into, bypassing the meter.

Detectives believe that more than $300 worth of electricity was stolen from Withlacoochee River Electric Cooperative.
