Federal Drug Enforcement Administration agents raided a Highlands Ranch home on Friday and arrested a medical marijuana grower who was part of a 9Wants to Know story about suburban medical marijuana growing operations.
"Whether it's a small grow or a big grow, I don't think the average person realizes how close to their front door it is," Chris Bartkowicz said two weeks ago when he gave 9Wants to Know a tour of his operation.
He operated a large medical marijuana grow facility in the basement of his $637,000 Highlands Ranch home.
"I'm definitely hidden in suburbia," he said.
After 9NEWS showed a tease for a story about Bartkowicz and his operation Thursday night, DEA agents decided he needed a visit. By Friday afternoon DEA agents were at the house carrying away moving boxes and leaf-size trash bags from his home, all filled with marijuana plants.
They also carried away lights, filters and other equipment that were part of Bartkowicz's growing operation.
