Illegal grow operation bust in Romulus nets cars, weapons

What feds are calling an illegal grow operation led to the seizure of marijuana, guns and cars.

- Neighbors said the homeowner has been dealing pot for years, but now the feds are on to him.

Agents from the FBI, DEA and violent crime task force paid a visit to a Romulus home on 34000 block of Beverly Road on Wednesday.

FOX 2 watched as classic cars, trailers and other items were hauled away from the home. Then a semi-truck was loaded with other belonging pulled from the house.

Bobcats could be seen in the backyard of the house taking down alleged marijuana plants. Multiple sources say it was part of a large scale grow operation happening in the house.

The owner of the home, Andre Bolling is paralyzed from the neck down and was not at the house at the time of the raid.

We did some digging on Bolling's criminal past and found felony weapon and drug charges in Wayne County dating back to the early 1990s.

His latest arrest came back in 2004 for possession and delivery of marijuana. The same address is also listed for the business "Big Bank Records."

As for the specifics of the FBI investigation, FOX 2 was told it was an illegal grow operation in which weapons were found at the home of a convicted felon.
