Hendry Half Million Dollar Growhouse Found

Tip Leads To Montura Ranch Arrest - 206 Pounds Of Marijuana

CLEWISTON, FL. -- On January 25, 2011 after receiving information of a possible marijuana grow house, Hendry County Deputies responded to the residence of 765 N. Quebrada Street. 

Upon arriving on scene Deputies met with the owner of the residents, 43 year old Carlos Gonzalez.  Upon approaching the property owner deputies could smell a strong odor of what they believed to be Marijuana.  Hendry County Narcotics Investigators were called and responded to the home and after speaking with the home owner they were given permission to enter the house.

Once inside deputies located 88 live marijuana plants, weighing approximately 206 pounds, with a street value of approximately $500,000 and additional miscellaneous drug paraphernalia.  

Carlos Gonzalez was taken into custody and charged with Possession of Marijuana over 20 grams, Possession of Marijuana with intent to sell, Trafficking in marijuana, Cultivation and/or Producing, Possession of a Controlled Substance without a prescription, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Resisting Arrest without Violence. 

The 1.25 acre $110,000 rural property was purchased last year by Xonxi 1, LLC, a corporation set up at that address by Raquel Lisboa, with tax bills going to a Miami Beach attorney, according to county and state records.

Gonzalez is currently being held on a $41,000 bond.

    What's the matter Don are you afraid of the truth? Is that why you keep removing my comments? Marijuana pfohibition is a sham and WE THE PEOPLE are going to end it and expose all the crooks that have lied and trashed the Constitution for their own profit! If you support this prohibition you have either been duped or you are a traitor! Stop hiding behind what others write and tell us why you think marijuana prohibition is just. It seems to be something you support. Tell us why. Tell us what good this prohibition has done.

    The Constitutional right to freedom of religion, free speech, a free press, to keep and bear arms, to be secure in your person, house, papers and effects against unreasonable search and seizure, to life, liberty and property, to be protected from having your property taken by the government without due process of law and without just compensation, to confront the witnesses against you, to be protected from excessive bail, excessive fines, cruel and unusual punishment, to vote and others have been unjustly denied to tens of millions of Americans in the name of marijuana prohibition.

    By what patriotic "right" does anyone in a free Country claim it's just to execute, jail or fine a free person that is doing no harm to their self or anyone else?

    (This comment is for the drug war addicted sheep that belong in Nazi Germany not the LAND OF THE FREE!)

    NOW POST MY ORIGINAL COMMENT YOU CHICKEN! THEN LET'S DEBATE THE ISSUES ON THEIR MERIT. You won't do that because you have no legitimate argument and you know I will expose your lies about marijuana and marijuana prohibition to anyone that reads this post.

    You Doper sir are a dirtbag. I do not accept your premise that a doper does no harm. You are either an addicted individual or are profiting from the hendry county drug factory industry!

    I am a Constitution supporting patriot that does not believe in Government oppression of free people. You have never posted even one legitimate reason for anyone to support marijuana prohibition and when I posted a long list of legitimate reasons to end this unconstitutional illegal sham of a law you wouldn’t even have the common courtesy to post my comment and debate the issues. All you do is employ the same spineless tactics used by every other anti-marijuana propaganda parrot out there… you resort to name calling and personal attacks.

    The majority of the profits that are being made from marijuana prohibition are going to the crooked corporations that support marijuana prohibition in order to keep selling their inferior lower quality often environmentally harmful and sometimes deadly products.

    If you don’t want criminals, gangsters, illegal aliens and terrorists to profit from marijuana then you should be in favor of legalizing marijuana. Marijuana prohibition is a complete FAILURE!

    All major authorities agree that the vast majority of so called “drug-related” violent crime is caused by the prohibition of drugs, rather than the drugs themselves. It was the same during alcohol prohibition. Alcohol prohibition created violent criminal organizations just like every other drug prohibition has. These violent crimes should be labeled PROHIBITION RELATED, not drug related. Ending alcohol prohibition is exactly why you don’t see shootouts over that drug trade any more. Stop funding criminals, gangsters, illegal aliens and terrorists with hundreds of billions of tax free $ every year! THE YEAR ALCOHOL PROHIBITION ENDED VIOLENT CRIME FELL BY 65%! Marijuana accounts for roughly half of the entire illegal drug trade. Legalizing this one nontoxic drug that it is impossible to overdose on will take away HALF of all the illegal tax free money that is funding all the illegal drug dealers. “When you fund something you get more of it”: (Ron Paul). Does anyone really think we need more criminals, gangsters, illegal aliens and terrorists?

    Sounds like you are the parrot for the doper industry. You sir are an addicted fool. You do not even know the truth about what the Marijuana industry funds now, and will continue to fund even if it would be legalized. I am aware of the people that are right there lining up for permits and are pushing legalization...its the same people and you are a fool or one of them! I will not waste my time here dealing with addicts or pushers...have a good life Hendry doper dirtbag!
    Oh yes, stop flying my flag on a hemp stalk, you insult true American Patriots. If your concern for the Constitution is just, then there are more important issues like..... what the hell funded the jester in the whitehouse Don't you wonder where the money came from? In fact where the hell did he come from?

  7. Ron Paul is by far the best Federal public servant we have! He can’t be bought and his voting record proves it. He supports WE THE PEOPLE and the Constitution better than anyone in the entire Congress! RON PAUL IN 2012 OR SOONER!

    We’re fighting the same enemy, you just haven’t caught on to the fact that they are also behind marijuana prohibition. They are more ruthless, destructive, deadly and illusive than any other group of insurgent terrorists! I call them the “banksters”. They own the mainstream media, they own both political parties and most politicians and they own most of the largest corporations in the world. There’s only one force that can defeat them and that’s WE THE PEOPLE but that means we’re going to have to wake up and educate a lot of people and get them to take action instead of believing everything they see in the mainstream media and going along with the destruction of our Constitution.

    Great Dumb Arse, you just made it a point for me never to support Ron Paul!
    It is clear that America has been ruined by drug addicted loons like yourself...good grief!

    Hey "editor" learn the definition of SPAM! Spam is unwanted advertising! Deleting comments that have links to FACTS about the topic is a SLIMY way to try and prevent the honest FACTS from being posted!

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain UNALIENABLE RIGHTS, that among these are LIFE, LIBERTY and the PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, DERIVING THEIR JUST POWERS FROM THE CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED —

    That WHENEVER ANY FORM OF GOVERNMENT BECOMES DESTRUCTIVE OF THESE ENDS, it is the RIGHT of the PEOPLE to ALTER OR ABOLISH IT, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. BUT WHEN A LONG TRAIN OF ABUSES AND USURPATIONS, pursuing invariably the same Object EVINCES A DESIGN TO REDUCE THEM UNDER ABSOLUTE DESPOTISM, IT IS THEIR RIGHT, IT IS THEIR DUTY, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
