SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

Springfield police officers recovered more than 100 marijuana plants during a drug raid in Indian Orchard Wednesday.

Officers noticed about 30 marijuana plants growing in the backyard of 96 Decatur St. while serving a restraining order. The officers notified detectives who then secured a search warrant for the premises after seeing the marijuana plants for themselves, according to Springfield police Sgt. John Delaney.

Prior to executing the warrant, police spotted the suspect of the investigation going to a nearby package store in his girlfriend's Nissan. Authorities took Willie Hall, 26, of 96 Decatur St., into custody without incident, Delaney said.

When executing the warrant, authorities were greeted at the front door by Hall's girlfriend, identified as 19-year-old Shalynn N. Davey, Delaney said.

While searching the home police found 95 plants inside a grow room on the second floor. The room was equipped with a free-standing grow hut, hydroponic lights, fans, filters and an irrigation system, Delaney said.

Police seized a "black powder" pistol and $7,600 in cash, in addition to the marijuana plants and paraphernalia, according to an arrest report.

Police charged Hall and Davey with cultivation of marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, and violation of a drug-free school zone due to their residences' close proximity to Indian Orchard Elementary School, Delaney said.

Both suspects were scheduled to be arraigned in Springfield District Court Thursday.
