Authorities told Channel 2’s Tom Regan a total of $7 million in high grade pot was discovered in the basements of suburban homes in Hall, Barrow and Jackson counties.
What else authorities uncovered, on Channel 2 Action News at 6.
One house was in a nice, suburban neighborhood in Gainesville.
Investigators seized 1,500 plants, and 300 pounds of packaged pot. They also took in over $300,000 in cash.
Nine people were arrested.
Neighbors told Regan they were completely fooled.
“They seemed just like a normal family,” Yanis Latsis said. “That is shocking to me. I never would have guessed in my right mind that something was going on over there."
