According to authorities, they found 118 marijuana plants, scales, smoking devices and growing equipment similar to a hydroponic set-up.

They say they were alerted when they learned the house had a much higher power bill than other homes on the block.

Haxter, who was arrested May 1, is free on bail and has a preliminary hearing on a charge of manufacture with intent to distribute on June 1, according to the online court docket.
