Lee County sheriff's deputies said Julie Ann Moore was arrested March 13 for allegedly operating a grow house in a barn on her North Fort Myers property and she was arrested March 21 when investigators determined stolen electricity was being used to power the barn, WZVN-HD, Fort Myers, Fla., reported Friday.

Deputies said there were 120 marijuana plants in the barn along with an irrigation system, dozens of fluorescent lights, power inverters, chemicals and fertilizers. They said representatives from utility provider LCEC discovered the electrical power for the barn had been diverted from a pole without going through an electric meter.

Moore is facing charges of operating a grow house, theft of utility services and grand theft.
