A Saturday disturbance call where City County Drug Task Force agents found a small indoor marijuana operation continues to be investigated.

The task force continues to search for the people involved, Captain A.M. Harris said.

Agent D.R. Radford obtained warrants for the arrests of Keith Williams, 29, and LaSonya Artis, 33.

Currently they face charges related to indoor grow operation, Harris, said.

No charges have been filed in the disturbance.

A vehicle was found damaged at the residence at Pugh’s Mobile Home Park off Roper Springs Road in the Littleton area. Harris said blood was found next to the mobile home as well as the front door of the residence.

Someone in the community witnessed a disturbance and called law enforcement. Harris said it is believed the disturbance was between Williams and Artis.

No one was at the residence when deputies arrived Saturday morning around 9:30 a.m.

Deputies entered the home to make sure no one was inside hurt.  

In the master bedroom closet deputies discovered what appeared to be a small indoor marijuana grow operation.

Deputies contacted the task force. Radford applied for and was granted a search warrant.

During the search of the residence, agents located marijuana, a pot, a bucket and bong.

It was unclear how long the marijuana had been growing. Harris said the leaves were mature.

It is also unclear where the pair frequent.

Harris said Radford went for a follow-up today and no one was home.

The pair face charges of manufacture marijuana, maintaining a dwelling for a controlled substance and possession of marijuana paraphernalia.

Lieutenant C. Boden, Corporal P. Moyer, deputies J. Comeaux and P. Rackley and Agent D.J. Epperson were involved in this investigation.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call Crimestoppers at 252-583-4444.
