HULL (WBZ) ― A marijuana grow house, fully equipped with false walls, irrigation equipment and air conditioning units was uncovered in Hull on Monday.

The investigation of the three-story house at 35 Manomet Ave. began last month. When police obtained a search warrant for the home, they uncovered four grow rooms in the top two floors of the house.

The "elaborate setup" included a hydroponics marijuana grow house with false retaining walls containing internal air conditioning units, electrical and irrigation equipment, gas lines for CO2 generators, high intensity lighting, timers, thermostats and ducting.

Police said they found 113 marijuana plants having and estimated street value of $452,000, inside the home.

Five people were arrested. Jian Lan Zhu, 42, and Xiu Zhen Wang, 43, both homeless, Xhizhong Xu, 32, of Chicago, Zhu Yugang, 48, of Chicago and Yuyung Wang, 62 of Quincy face several drug charges.

HULL -
Hull police say they found a hydroponic marijuana ''grow house'' with false walls, electrical and irrigation equipment and gas lines connected to carbon dioxide generators when they raided a Manomet Avenue house.
Hull police detectives, assisted by Hingham police, searched the house Monday night after they saw a Quincy man and four others leaving carrying gardening materials.

Inside, officers found 113 marijuana plants growing behind false walls in the house at 35 Manomet Ave., a residential street two blocks from Nantasket Beach near the Kenberma neighborhood, police said.
Police said the plants would have been worth about $452,000 when they matured, or about $4,000 each.

The arrests followed a month-long investigation by Hull Detective Craig Lepro and police officer Sean Conneely, police said.

On Monday, the five suspects - three men and two women - arrived together in a car and went into the house for about two hours, authorities said.

Police stopped them as they left carrying potting soil, fertilizer and metal ducting, said Bridget Norton Middleton, spokeswoman for Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy Cruz.

Police said there were four separate grow rooms on the top two floors of the three-floor house.

There were also gas lines throughout the house for carbon dioxide generators, as well as air exchangers, high-intensity lighting, timers, thermostats and ductwork.

Officers also seized more than $4,000 in cash and two cars, plus growing equipment valued at about $45,000.

The five people arrested at the Hull marijuana grow house are:

  • Yuyang Wang, 62, of 80 Farrington St., Quincy, charged with two counts of marijuana distribution.
  • Shizhong Xu, 45, of Chicago, charged with two counts of marijuana distribution.
  • Zhu Yugang, 48, of Chicago, charged with two counts of marijuana distribution.
  • Xiu Wang, 44, no known address, charged with two counts of marijuana possession with intent to distribute.
  • Jian Zhu, 43, no known address, charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana.
All of the suspects were also charged with conspiracy to violate the drug laws.

At their Hingham District Court arraignments Tuesday, bail was set at $50,000 each for Xu, Zhu, Yugang and Xiu Wang.
Yuyang Wang's bail was set at $25,000.

They are scheduled to return to court Oct. 21.
