Sheriff’s detectives came to Jason Wolf’s Fort Myers home to investigate a rape — and stayed to investigate a marijuana grow house.

When they left, they had Wolf in handcuffs on charges of sexual assault; possession of marijuana with intent to sell, manufacture or deliver; marijuana possession over 20 grams; possession of a controlled substance without a prescription; and possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, detectives spoke with a woman who said she had been in an argument with Wolf that escalated into rape. Detectives arrived at Wolf’s home with a search warrant for the house and questions for Wolf. They had even more questions for the 30-year-old once they spotted marijuana on a table next to the kitchen and drawers filled with smokeable weed.

That sight brought another search warrant and, cops say, even more discoveries: “207.8 grams of marijuana, 1.8 grams of THC Wax, ballasts, 1000-watt high pressure sodium bulbs used for indoor growing, carbon dioxide tanks, old marijuana root systems in trash bags, fertilizers/plant growth agents and other items commonly used in the cultivation and production of marijuana.”

That 207.8 grams would bring about $1,674.87, using the state price estimates on honestmarijuana.com.

A records check doesn’t show previous criminal activity for Wolf.
