20 Pot Plants Found Inside Gulf Shores Home, 45-Year-Old Arrested


A 45-year-old is behind bars after authorities found twenty marijuana plants in his home in Gulf Shores.

Christoper Russo is in jail on a million-dollar bond on the charge of drug trafficking.  Investigators found 20 pot plants inside his home on County Road 6 in Gulf Shores.

Authorities say it wasn’t a sophisticated growing operation, more like he was growing tomato plants.

Russo, who is originally from Ohio, was previously arrested in 2012 on a fugitive from justice warrant out of Georgia.
