The house at 75 Tenney Road was one of four sites involved in a major drug bust on Jan. 23. Braintree police said they discovered marijuana production operations at a home in Braintree, two homes in Quincy, and one in Westford. Police used search warrants to gain entrance and arrested three individuals on trafficking charges.
Police named only one of those individuals — Xu Feng Wang, age 30, of Boston. Wang was arraigned in Quincy District Court on Jan. 24, according to the Clerk’s office, and was held at the Norfolk County House of Correction on $10,000 bail. He was released on Jan. 28, according to House of Correction Spokesman Kara Nyman. Wang’s attorney, John C. Rapone, did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
Prosecutors did not release the names of the two other individuals allegedly involved in the growing operation: a 48 year old Quincy man and and a 23 year old Quincy woman.
According to Braintree police, the search revealed enough growing marijuana plants to meet the trafficking weight threshold of state drug laws.
A notice posted by Braintree police stated that unregulated growing operations present safety hazards because dangerous chemicals and faulty wiring are often used inside the unoccupied house. The plants also create ideal conditions for mold to grow and flourish.
UPDATE – A photo of the Westford house and its mailbox were added on Feb. 1.
