According to the Miami-Dade Police department, there is no harmless marijuana.
Investigators said Thursday that Yoel Padron Garcia, a guard at a hydroponics lab in Naranja, confessed to shooting at undercover narcotics detectives, wounding one. Garcia was arrested in Dania Beach, 40 miles to the north.
Miami-Dade police announced Garcia’s arrest Thursday, hours after Miami-Dade Detective Edwin Diaz was released from Jackson Memorial Hospital. They took the opportunity to stress a rise in violence associated with grow houses.
