Two arrested in Hernando grow house operations

Two people were arrested and 93 marijuana plants were confiscated Thursday when authorities discovered grow houses at two locations in Hernando County.

Deputies responding to a mistakenly placed 911 call at 7369 Tarrytown Drive in Spring Hill discovered 62 plants belonging to resident Anthony Calderelli, 24, who was arrested and charged with one count each of trafficking in marijuana, cultivation of marijuana, possession of a structure for marijuana cultivation and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Calderelli told deputies he had been having problems with his cellphone and had been trying to call 611 to get technical support.

In the second incident, deputies executing a search warrant at 4268 Cimarron Way in Ridge Manor discovered 21 plants growing in a shed behind the residence. Approximately 647 grams of processed marijuana packaged for sale was also located in the shed, along with four tablets of hydrocodone, one tablet of morphine and multiple items of paraphernalia.

Scott Haynes, 53, was charged with two counts each of cultivation of marijuana and possession of a structure for marijuana cultivation, three counts each for of sale of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia and one count of possession of marijuana with intent to sell.

Both suspects remained in the Hernando County Detention Center on Friday. Bail was set at $20,500 for Calderelli and at $67,500 for Haynes.
