Two marijuana grow houses are out of business as the vendors cool their heels in jail, according to officials.

A marijuana grow house operation conducted by the Lee County Sheriff's Office narcotics and vice units and Bravo District deputies led to the detection and dismantling of the grow houses.

A search warrant was executed at 14590 Briar Lane, Fort Myers. Deputies discovered 170 mature marijuana plants growing in the residence and on the property.

Alejandro Sanchez-Bahena, 35, was arrested and charged with trafficking in marijuana, producing marijuana and possession of drug equipment.

Deputies also located and seized three rifles and a pistol.

A second search warrant was executed at 913 Richmond Ave. N. Inside the residence, deputies discovered 65 marijuana plants in different stages of growth.

Humberto Garcia, 30, was arrested and charged with trafficking in marijuana, producing marijuana, tampering with utility equipment and possession of a structure known to manufacture drugs with a minor present.
