Alleged: Sergio Manuel Salizar
Detectives are looking for a 24-year-old man they say is responsible for growing marijuana in his Meridian home with the intent to sell.
Detectives with the Ada Metro Narcotics Unit went to a home in the 1100 block of Crestwood Drive after a mortgage company worker discovered the plants, dead animals and feces in the home, which is under foreclosure proceedings.
Detectives are now looking for Sergio Manuel Salizar, who they say has been living in the home.
Police said the house was in such "deplorable conditions" that officers had to wear protective gear to enter the home. Several kittens had been locked in a bathroom and died of apparent dehydration. A dead Beagle was found decaying inside a pet carrier in the living room, and feces, inches deep, covered the floor in several rooms, said Ada County Sheriff's spokeswoman Andrea Dearden said.
Detectives seized 70 marijuana plants, processed marijuana packaged for sale and several items used in the manufacturing operation.
Anyone with information on Salizar should call Crime Stoppers at 343-COPS or non-emergency dispatch at 377-6790.
