400 marijuana plants found in Austin home
Police raided a home in Austin where over 400 marijuana plants were found growing.
During a search of the home, police also found two pounds of cannabis, and 11 jars of “hash butter” according to KXAN.
At the time of the search, Haddad allegedly told police on video that he had grown and sold the marijuana. Authorities said the hash butter in the jars tested positive for tetrahydrocannabinols, also known as THC. That is the active ingredient in weed. Authorities say they measured three of the 11 jars of hash butter and found they alone weighed 840 grams. That amount of THC, when manufactured, qualifies as a first-degree felony.
Haddad was also charged with possession of marijuana, a state jail felony.
41-year-old Kristopher Haddad faces life in prison for the growing operation.
