Investigators raided a Chesterfield Township home, seizing more than 100 marijuana plants and arresting an adult male, township police said Tuesday.
A township detective who recently joined the County of Macomb Enforcement Team, also known as COMET, initiated the investigation in the 24 Mile Road and Gratiot area. Police were looking into suspicious activity in a home in the Pleasant Meadows subdivision, according to a news release.
What they found during a Sept. 13 raid was an "elaborate and sophisticated hydroponic marijuana-growing operation," Detective Sgt. Deron Myers stated.
In addition to the plants discovered inside the home, police also seized extensive equipment that supported the illegal operation, Myers said.
The man under arrested was in the house at the time of the raid. His identity was not released, pending the issuance of charges. Police said the investigation is ongoing.
