HAVANA, Fla. (WCTV) -- Gadsden County deputies raided a grow house Tuesday night.

Authorities say they seized several potted plants, packaged marijuana, drug paraphernalia and cash.

The bust happened in Havana at two mobile homes next door to each other at 312 and 286 Moccasin Circle. Authorities say it was a "very sophisticated marijuana cultivation system."

It was the result of a five-month investigation.

William Rudolph lives in the neighborhood. He said, "There have been quite a bit of traffic in this subdivision with drugs and stuff. It's really sad to think that all of that goes on, so much of it."

Brian Duprey was arrested and faces several drug charges.

Deputies say the street value of the seizure was valued at about $250,000.
