Resident of marijuana grow operation turns himself in

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A suspect who allegedly resided at a marijuana growing operation warehouse with his 22-month-old child, turned himself in to authorities, police say.

Ronald James Sisco, 42, turned himself into police Thursday to the Main Police Station in the 200 block of South Stone Avenue. He was arrested on one count of unlawful possession of marijuana for sale, one count of unlawful cultivation of marijuana for sale, one count of unlawful possession of narcotic paraphernalia and one count of child abuse.

Police discovered the warehouse on a fenced lot on March 14, mainly due to the apparent smell of the grow operation. Police had a warrant to search the premesis, and they saw that part of the warehouse was converted to a residence where it was obvious that someone lived there, along with $18,000 in U.S. currency.

The other part of the warehouse was a sophisticated marijuana grow operation, which included 356 marijuana plants and more than 53 pounds of cultivated hydroponic marijuana. Other rooms held grow equipment.
