PALM BAY, Fla. Apr 14, 2005 — A tornado that ripped through Geoffrey Crook's home didn't just tear away his roof. Authorities say it exposed his
elaborate marijuana-growing operation.
Crook, 41, was charged Tuesday with possession and manufacturing of cannabis after police officers served him with an arrest warrant at his job. He
was released on $1,000 bond Tuesday night.
The operation had lamps, hydroponic equipment and log books. Fifty-four marijuana plants neatly arranged in the master bedroom had a street value of
about $8,000, authorities said.
The operation was uncovered in February after a twister, with winds whipping up to 112 mph, tore away Crook's roof.
This is excellent !!! I'll bet that this guy never thought he'd get caught, especially by Mother Nature...
