Police_steroidsMarshall Suiit has used his green thumb for the lucrative but illegal activity of growing marijuana plants.  Now, he may be sucking on that green thumb of his as he contemplates his future behind bars.

Suiit was arrested by Nye County sheriff‘s deputies and was booked into police custody on five charges:  possession of a controlled substance for marijuana, two counts of possession of a controlled substance for anabolic steroids, maintaining a residence for the purpose of cultivating marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to Fox 5 News, the 46-year-old Suitt was growing around 300 marijuana plants inside his rented home. Police received an anonymous tip and secured a search warrant. Search of the premises yielded hundreds of marijuana plants, vials of steroids, three pit bulls and a .40-caliber handgun.

Police had to ask the assistance of hazmat (hazardous materials) team since certain chemicals are used in indoor propagation of marijuana.
