During the execution of a search warrant, deputies found Kevin Calvin and Jeffrey Belcastro in the residence, 17.5 oz. of cultivated marijuana, and various paraphernalia related to growing marijuana.

The plants and marijuana were seized and taken to the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office and placed in evidence.
