On Jan. 4, at approximately 8:30 a.m., while conducting a home inspection of a drug court participant, an officer found a large quantity of marijuana hidden inside of the home. Mesquite Police Detectives were called to investigate further. After securing a search warrant for the residence, the detectives located a large amount of marijuana and edible marijuana candies all packaged and ready to sell.
