A 42-year-old Tracy man was arrested Wednesday at his home on Lammers Road and is facing charges associated with operating a marijuana grow house.
The Tracy Police Department raided the house at 25376 S. Lammers Road at about 11 a.m. and took Jason Christopher Elola into custody. Marijuana growing apparatus could be seen through an open garage door, and officers confirmed that the home, which is a half-mile south of Kimball High School, had been used to cultivate pot illegally.
The department said Thursday that investigators found 100 plants, five pounds of processed cannabis and evidence of a much larger harvest in the fall.
As of Wednesday, Elola was in San Joaquin County Jail facing $125,000 bail for felony charges of planting, harvesting or processing more than six marijuana plants; possession of marijuana with intent to sell; and theft of utility services from a prior warrant.
An unidentified woman at the home was also arrested on unrelated warrants.
