An Illinois family is accused of running a million-dollar “designer marijuana” grow operation from their home.
John Gecan, 52; his wife Darlene, 52; their son Christopher, 27; and another relative, James Osmolski, 22, were charged after police busted the grow op in the 7,000-square-foot home in an unincorporated area near Tinley Park, according to Cook County Sheriff’s officials, reports Chicago Breaking News Center.
Sheriff’s detectives said they began investigating the family earlier this month after intercepting a package of marijuana buds addressed to the home.
