A 36 year old Vidor man was arrested Wednesday after a search warrant was executed on a home in the 1500 block of Deer Park Dr. in Quiet Village, a sub-division east of Vidor.
Joseph Lee Cascio was arrested for possession of marijuana, a third degree felony.
During the search, officers located a complete indoor marijuana cultivation operation in a travel trailer next to the residence. Seized were more than 80 marijuana plants, five pounds of loose marijuana buds and leaves and various drug paraphernalia items. Also, there were nine firearms taken from the scene.
