Police raid house in Largo, seize marijuana plants

LARGO — Police raided a suspected marijuana growhouse at 2144 Fulton Way late Thursday night, seizing 11 pot plants and arresting two men on drug-related charges.

The search of the property at about 11:30 p.m. was "the culmination of an investigation into narcotics being sold from the residence," according to the Largo Police Department. Police said the plants were being grown in the house's back yard in three black flower pots.

Richard Brennan, 41, was charged with three counts of possessing cannabis, three counts of selling cannabis and one count of manufacturing cannabis. Michael Cain, 45, was charged with one count of cannabis possession and one count of possessing Clonazepam, a prescription anti-anxiety drug. Police said Cain does not have a prescription for the medicine.

Brennan was being held at the Pinellas County jail in lieu of $50,500 bail and Cain in lieu of $2,150 bail.
