A homeowner renting out a property on Westbank Road was hoping to interest a buyer in the home, but instead he was shocked to discover his renter's elaborate indoor marijuana-growing operation.
One of the renters of the home, Julia Lynn Jundt, 48, was arrested by the Two Rivers Drug Enforcement Team and the Garfield County Sheriff's Office on Nov. 30 for cultivation of marijuana, conspiracy to cultivate marijuana and possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute. Jundt's husband, Steven Jundt, may also face charges, although the case is still under investigation, Sheriff Lou Vallario said.
According to an arrest affidavit, homeowner John Hazen was planning to show the three-story, light brown stucco home to a potential buyer when he discovered a room in the basement that was "sheetrocked over."
"I was dumbfounded - it was a factory," he said.
