WINFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) - A Montcalm County Sheriff's deputy found an indoor marijuana grow operation at a house while investigating an assault complaint.
The incident happened Monday at around 7 p.m. on Huron Drive in Winfield Township.
The deputy was attempting to find a witness to an assault case when he smelled an overwhelming odor of marijuana coming from the neighbor's house, according to a news release.
The suspect, a 42-year-old man, told the deputy that he was a medical marijuana cardholder, and admitted to having an indoor grow operation. He told the officer that he had around 30 plants, but he is only allowed to have 12 plants.
When the Central Michigan Enforcement Team arrived, they discovered that the suspect had 140 plants, which is over 10 times his allowed amount. The suspect was also in possession of loose marijuana and a large amount of marijuana grow equipment.
No arrest has been made, but the CMET is continuing their investigation.
