STONY POINT, N.Y. -- Stony Point police took down a sophisticated marijuana growing operation and charged a local man with unlawfully growing cannabis on Tuesday, Aug. 9, after receiving reports of pot being grown at his home.

According to Lt. Keith Williams, Vincent Guarino, 36, of Lenni Lenape Court, was charged after police served a search at his home where they found an elaborate operation including ventilation, lighting and multiple pieces of equipment used in the growing of marijuana were located and seized along with numerous marijuana plants in various stages of growth.

"I would say the operation was quite significant and what set it apart was it was in a nice residential neighborhood," he said.

Guarino, who is currently on disability, was charged with criminal possession of marijuana and unlawfully growing cannabis. He was arraigned in Stony Point Justice Court and released on $500 bail. He is due back in Court on Sept. 1.

"It's too bad he couldn't have taken the knowledge he has and used it for something productive," Williams said.

The Stony Point Police were assisted by Rockland County Sherrif's Police and the Haverstraw Police Department K9 Unit.
