Henderson police raided the house near Warm Springs and Arroyo Grande last night, following a tip from neighbors. They found nearly 200 pot plants inside, with an estimated street value of over $600,000.
Twenty-nine-year-old Ezekiel Parraz and 28-year-old Candice Blackwell were taken into custody. Parraz had played baseball at UNLV and was drafted by the Kansas City Royals in 2001.
