CLAY COUNTY, Florida — Five people have been arrested in the largest marijuana grow operation bust Clay County, Florida has seen in years.

Their plants were hidden in underground bunkers.

All five arrested are Cuban nationals in the country legally, but are not citizens, according to the Clay County Sheriff’s Office.

Ashley Crater lives next door to the reported underground marijuana operation that was one of four grow houses in Clay County. She says the week leading up to the bust, stench of marijuana was overwhelming.

“I’d get light headed you’d feel kind of nauseous and stuff it was very overpowering and I wouldn’t let my son come out,” said Crater.

But before the arrests, Crater says no one suspected any illegal activity.

In all, police confiscated $864k worth of marijuana.
