SANTA FE (KRQE) - The man police say used a fake business as a front for a massive marijuana grow in the middle of Santa Fe is now locked up.
According to online Santa Fe County jail records Marshall Durán was arrested Friday.
Sources say Durán was picked up in Española.
Police filed a warrant for his arrest this week after sniffing out the elaborate marijuana growing operation off Cerrillos Road worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The warehouse was once used as a sausage packing plant. Police say Durán told the landlord he needed the building for his new restaurant.
"Definitely knew what he was doing," said SFPD Capt. Aric wheeler. "A very complex structure where they take large freezers and converted them into grow rooms."
Durán is jailed under a $200,000 bond for the new charge but is being held without bond on a probation violation from a previous trafficking conviction.
