Police: Marijuana grow operation busted in Delhi basement


Officers busted a pot growing operation in a man’s basement last week, according to Delhi Township police. Daniel Spegal Jr., a resident of the Neeb Road home, is facing a tampering with evidence charge along with three drug charges.  The 21-year-old tried to hide the pot plants by throwing them out of the house while police prepared to search the residence, according to a Hamilton County Court affidavit.  “Agents recovered approximately 9 pounds of marijuana plant material that was taken from a marijuana grow operation in the basement,” police said Tuesday. Officers initially responded to the scene for a harassment report and well-being check. While at the home, they smelled the “odor of raw marijuana,” police said.  [Norwood group working to reduce misdemeanor marijuana fines] After obtaining a search warrant, police entered Spegal’s home and found the marijuana ready for distribution, court documents allege. Police believe jealousy on the part of the groom’s ex-wife may have motivated the shooting.
