CARLSBAD— Two Carlsbad residents were arrested on March 8 for conducting an elaborate indoor marijuana growing operation, according to Carlsbad Police. 

Carlsbad Police Department detectives arrested Daniel Gregg, 46, and Dana Trapsi, 44, after serving a search warrant about noon at Gregg’s residence at the 2200 block of Nob Hill Drive and uncovering the operation.

Detectives seized about 55 marijuana plants at the residence, as well as about 6 pounds of processed marijuana and more than $6,000 assumed to be proceeds from the drug sales.

Gregg was living and growing the marijuana plants in a small building next to his parents’ house, in what Carlsbad Police Lt. Matt Magro referred to as a “granny flat.” The residence was not considered a “complaint house” by law enforcement and did not have a history of calls for service.

Gregg and Trapsi were booked into the Vista Detention Facility and posted bail the same day, said Magro.

Vice/narcotics detectives had discovered the operation through another investigation, which is still ongoing, said Magro.
