Hydroponics Lab Found Inside Coral Gables Home

A 26-year-old man was arrested Wednesday after police found a hydroponics lab inside the home he rented.

Rolando Abreu is charged with drug trafficking.
Coral Gables police and Drug Enforcement Administration agents searched the home, acting on a tip.

They found 30 plants of high-quality marijuana inside the home located on Tangier Street near Red Road.

'The entire right-hand side of this house is a complete hydroponics system set up,' said Mike Frevola, of Coral Gables Police Department. 'We have 30 plants, approximately 90 to 100 pounds of marijuana, with a street value of $200,000.'

Frevola said the investigation is ongoing
