Acting on a concerned citizen's tip, detectives assigned to the Lane County-area Interagency Narcotic Enforcement Team (INET) served two search warrants Thursday in Eugene that led to an indoor marijuana grow with nearly 750 marijuana plants, more than 660 marijuana plant root balls, thousands of dollars in growing equipment and other evidence. Two suspects were cited to appear in Lane County Circuit Court on several charges.
 
On March 19, 2009 INET detectives served search warrants at two Eugene locations. The first search warrant was executed at an apartment complex at 673 W. 8th Avenue where detectives contacted SHAWN CHRISTOPHER McGLYNN, age 33, and VANESSA JONITA CRUMP, age 27. During the apartment search, detectives discovered more than two pounds of processed marijuana and other drug-related evidence including drug records.
 
The second location, a two-story 3 bedroom home at 2029 Plentywood Street, was connected to the suspects and a search warrant was executed. INET detectives and Lane County sheriff deputies discovered marijuana plants and/or growing equipment in the garage and every room except one bedroom. Over a three hour period, detectives seized 746 marijuana plants, more than 660 marijuana root balls, growing equipment and hundreds of pounds of potting soil. The house had modified electrical wiring to support the illegal growing operation.
 
McGLYNN and CRUMP were cited to appear April 15, 2009 in Lane County Circuit Court for Unlawful Possession, Manufacture, and Distribution of a Controlled Substance to wit: Marijuana.
 
The interagency INET team is comprised of detectives from Oregon State Police, Eugene Police Department, Springfield Police Department and Lane County Sheriff's Office.
