Mississippi man used buckets of poop to cover smell of pot plants
An Ocean Springs, Mississippi man used buckets of human waste to cover the strong smell of marijuana emanating from a pot growing operation in his house. According to WLOX, Channel 13, Jackson County police arrested Henry Ha Nguyen, 42, on Monday when officers found a sophisticated growing operation in his home and an adjacent property, as well as cash, high-powered amphetamines and weapons.
Sheriff Mike Byrd told Channel 13 that officers raided the properties on search warrants and found multiple buckets of waste that Nguyen was using to cover the smell of marijuana growing. Animal Control workers were also on the scene to secure a pair of German Shepherd dogs that Nguyen was using to guard his operation.
Nguyen is currently in custody at the Jackson County Adult Detention Center and is facing charges of two counts of possession of a controlled substance (marijuana and “ice,” a concentrated form of crystal methamphetamine) while in possession of a firearm, and one count of cultivation of marijuana (more than 10 pounds in a 12 month period).
