Harrison County Sheriff's Department arrested a Long Beach man on felony drug charges Friday after finding 126 marijuana plants growing inside the man's home.
Sheriff Melvin Brisolara said in a press release that Larry Reynoso Rios of Turner Road has been charged with felony manufacture of a controlled substance. He also has been charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and being a fugitive fleeing from justice.
Sheriff's narcotics investigators executed a search warrant at the residence after learning Rios was wanted in Florida. They found the plants, drug paraphernalia, digital scales and a shotgun with pistol grip and sawed-off barrel.
Rios also had a current fugitive warrant in Florida for probation violation in connection with a burglary conviction. He has been wanted in Florida since 2003.
