MONTGOMERY, Texas – When authorities served a search warrant Friday at a Conroe home, they found 11 pounds of hydroponic marijuana, 387 two-dose units of THC oil, 150 grams of THC oil, 3 grams of THC wax and two LSD stamps, officials said.

Investigators with the Office of Philip Cash, Constable Precinct No. 1 in Montgomery County, were tipped off about the drugs, and served the warrant about 1:40 p.m. in the 200 block of Longview Street.

Austin Camardelle, 25, and Destini Lynn Casey, 20, were arrested and charged with possessing marijuana and the manufacturing and delivery of the narcotics, officials said.

Authorities took all the drugs they found, along with other paraphernalia.

The THC oil was packaged for use in vapor cigarettes. Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is a crystalline compound that is the active ingredient of cannabis. The oil is extracted from the plant, officials said.
