The marijuana-growing operation was discovered at around 9 p.m. Wednesday, when officers were dispatched to the home for a “loud music” complaint, Chief William Cook said Thursday.
Upon arrival, officers found suspected marijuana plants in the suspect’s backyard garden, Cook said.
Police seized 47 plants ranging from 3 feet to more than 7 feet in height.
Cook said a 7-foot plant can yield between $2,000 and $3,000 worth of marijuana per year.
Police are seeking charges for the manufacturing of more than 20 marijuana plants but less than 200. Police said the suspect is a habitual offender, which means the penalty if convicted would be increased to seven years in prison.
