PRINEVILLE, OR -- Central Oregon drug investigators seized 1880 marijuana plants and arrested two people following a long-term investigation in Crook County. CODE detectives executed search warrants Wednesday at the Prineville home of Robert and Fawn Griffin, a commercial indoor grow operation and their nursery supply store. The store, called “Herbology,” was not licensed to sell, export or grow pot.
During the search, police also found 168 pounds of processed marijuana and $20,000 in cash, along with three rifles and two pistols. Detectives say the couple also used a complex money laundering scheme involving real estate and structured banking transactions.
The Griffins face numerous charges and are now in the Crook County Jail.
