CINCINNATI (WXIX) - The man accused of shooting at an Asian business in Evendale is also facing drug charges after police say they found a marijuana operation in his home.

Officers found over 40,000 grams of marijuana in 33-year-old Daniel Beckford’s home after conducting a search warrant, according to an affidavit.

When entering the home, police say they found a “sophisticated grow operation” with marijuana plants in multiple rooms and cultivation equipment for processing and packaging.

He is being charged with possession of drugs and illegal manufacture and cultivation of drugs, court documents say.

Beckjord also is facing multiple felonious assault charges after he admitted to shooting into the Tokyo Oriental Food Shop on Reading Road, according to Evendale police.

There was no one in the grocery at the time of the shooting but there were people hiding inside a nearby restaurant, according to the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office.
