VIRGINIA BEACH - Police seized marijuana plants, scales and other items from the garage of a Va. Beach man.
Eric Haxter, 33, is facing charges because of a marijuana grow operation at his Mandan Road home, police say.
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.
