Elaborate drug operation busted

Police bust elaborate drug operation
March 31, 2005

Police said 28-year-old Brendon Eric Hendrix is at the center of an elaborate drug operation in Hays County. He's charged with marijuana possession, but narcotics officers believe Hendrix will be facing federal charges as well.

Officers kept piling up the evidence Wednesday, as they let the press see what they had confiscated as the result of seizures in Austin and Hays County.

Methamphetamines, badges, military gear and law enforcement uniforms, including bullet-proof vests, firearms, a ballistic helmet, and even night-vision gear were confiscated. Police also discovered a bible cover meant to conceal a handgun.

Police found a very sophisticated marijuana growing operation on family property in Buda as well. More than 400 plants were grown with the use of computer-controlled hydroponics. The location was wired with a multi-camera surveillance system set up on the perimeter of the property.

"They had CO2 gas inside controlled by a computer released into the air. They had the hydroponic fluids filled with the fertilizer also set on the computer," Piatt said.

"The most sophisticated marijuana grow that we've seen in some time," APD Commander Harold Piatt said.

"Their computers must have been working because I had never seen anything like that. I seen nothing that would make me suspicious no kind of way," neighbor David Burnham said.

After hearing the news, Burnham got on the phone to a friend of the Hendrix. The friend said he, too, had no idea that anything like this was going on.

But other neighbors said they weren't surprised. They had noticed a lot of coming and going on the property and were suspicious for quite some time.

Hendrix is currently out on a $20,000 bond. Narcotics detectives believe he may have been involved in other growing operations.

Federal charges against Hendrix are pending, and other arrests may be made.

why are narcotics detectives so concerned over a plant that does not produce narcotic drugs? Why, after seeing how devoted and intelligent marijuana farmers can be, do they keep raiding and busting innocent people instead of trying to solve actual dangerous crimes. How much longer is this bullshit war going to go on. How many more law enforcement officers will have to put their lives in danger to arrest honest farmers? How many more honest farmers will be murdered? How many innocent bystanders will be murdered, before they see what a waste this War on Drugs has been...

It's too bad they weren't all there to put up a fight. Sounds like they had enough equipment for a decent standoff.
