what gets me about this is the fact that the evil grow is more the focus than the shooting of someone who was harming no one.

LAKELAND -- Sheriff's deputies responding to reports of a weapon blast this morning discovered an elaborate marijuana-growing operation in a suburban home in north Lakeland.

The home at 7520 E. Floral Circle, off of Duff Road, had 300 marijuana plants with an estimated street value of $600,000 to $1 million, accdording to Polk Sheriff Grady Judd.

The investigation began at 9 a.m. when neighbors called to report they heard a gun.

Deputies said a woman in the house had been shot in the neck by people attempting to steal the marijuana plants. The woman, identified as Aymara Irsula Eloy by sheriff's spokeswoman Donna Wood, was taken to Lakeland Regional Medical Center; her wounds are not considered life-threatening, officials said.

More than 20 marijuana grow houses have been discovered in Polk County this year, Wood said.

"This is just another example of criminal attempting to disguise their crimes in neighborhoods. We will not tolerate this criminal intrusion into our communities," Judd said.
