January 9, 2013

Judicial Investigation Police (OIJ) on Tuesday arrested a U.S. man with the last name of Blackburt, 37, on suspicion of growing hydroponic marijuana in a house in the province of Heredia, north of the capital.

Police officers entered Blackburt’s home after being alerted by neighbors that the front doors to the house were left open.

Once inside, officers discovered a hydroponic marijuana operation, with several plants, lamps, air conditioning, gas stoves and fertilizer bags.

Police seized 300 hydroponic marijuana plants almost two feet tall, as well as $10,000 and ₡20 million ($40,000) in cash.

Blackburt was arrested when he arrived at the house and remains in custody.
