Jefferson Township NJ officers recently arrested a man for allegedly operating a pot-growing business out of his attic.
Officers responded to a call of a dispute on East Shore Road in Jefferson Township, NJ. After arriving at the scene, officers arrested 25-year-old Kevin Intravaia and charged him with simple assault and criminal mischief.
Officers then investigated the residence and found what they believed to be marijuana in an open top dresser drawer. The officers searched the attic and allegedly found four marijuana plants, a plastic bag with green vegetation, and bags of plant food and fertilizer.
As a result, Intravaia faces additional charges of intent to distribute marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute in a school zone, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of growing materials. The school zone charges stem from the fact that the home is within 1,000 feet of a Briggs Elementary School.
