Ohio cops in an undercover sting op took down a 17 year-old high school senior who ran a multimillion dollar marijuana ring.
Cops first learned of a super-marijuana, a high-grade hydroponic strain of pot, that was being sold on the street for $350-$400 an ounce near Cincinnati last year.
An undercover agent made like “21 Jump Street” posing at the high school as a student and uncovered a sophisticated, multimillion dollar drug cartel that netted the alleged ringleader $20,000 a month.
Prosecutors said they found over $6,000 in cash stashed in the boy’s bedroom after a surprise raid on his suburban home.
Law enforcement has not released the student's name, because he was a 16-year-old minor at the time he committed the alleged drug deals.
The teen drug dealer in an apparent effort to set up a future plea bargain deal then lead cops to uncover a major hydro-farming operation, run by locals habitués in three surrounding towns.
Six adult individuals were arrested for their role in farming and dispersal of the herbal narcotic.
Cops seized 600 plants from three hydro-farms or “grow houses”, with a street value of $3 million.
