Record $7 million in high grade pot seized from six suburban homes

Millions of dollars worth of marijuana and hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash were seized from six grow houses operating in plain sight.

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."
