BONHAM, Tex. -- A Bonham man is behind bars after sheriff’s deputies found an operational indoor marijuana garden in his home.

Levi Jordan Stroud, 23, was arrested and charged with delivery of marijuana over five pounds and unlawful possession of a criminal instrument.

Investigators say Stroud was caught carrying several large items into the home, all of which were used to grow marijuana.

When a warrant was issued, officials found 28 plants, more than five pounds of marijuana, a loaded handgun and over $1,000 in cash.

"He was in the process of raising marijuana inside the home. He had a nice little setup going [using] very expensive lighting and had a pump system," Fannin County Sheriff Kenneth Moore said.

His bond has been set for over $25,000.

    Sean, who are you calling "uneducated"? Your spelling and grammar are truly awful! Smoking too much weed, I think!

    But will the dollar amount outweigh the cost of locking him up and letting have a place to continue what he's doing? Either way we pay...jail is no solution. Getting rid of chemicals is just too easy, but would affect other commerce, and with less drugs on the streets, the less officers we would need, people this play has no ending.

    and at one time alcohol was also is no different with cannabis.california is leading the way with medicinal cannabis and it will spread from there.get use to guys because it will happen.there are way too many other issues that are more important than a plant!!this is just a way for all you pill popping drunks to take the focus off of the real problems and to put it on cannabis!!

    WOW! Is all I can say. Honestly, I have never used any illegal drugs, but it's very obvious that a lot of you have. Maybe you guys should try drug rehab.....there is one in Ardmore and I am sure there are some in Texas. "Illegal" is just that Illegal and anyone who commits a crime should be tried for it and serve their time. What a bunch of CRACKHEADS!

    Sean,I can tell that you are a user and it has killed many brain cells. Keep your bias opinion to yourself. Your views are poison to the young children who may read your bull. You also hate the government,hate those who believe in Religion, hate the police,hate public schools and hate your self.Judging by the way you spelled conservative I think you are blowing smoke right now.
