Six men have been arrested on drug charges following an investigation that started earlier this year that looked into sophisticated marijuana grow and distribution. Search warrants were served Tuesday and Wednesday at 13 homes, Police said grow operations were set up in a number of homes, in some cases electricity being directly siphoned from power lines to lights, transformers and filtration systems.




The Evidence seized by police includes $74,000 in cash, roughly 2,400 plants with an estimated street value of $2.5 million, some 200 pounds of ready to deliver pot worth $600,000 and growing equipment valued at $200,000.




"Many of these 'grow houses' were specifically renovated to accommodate large-scale marijuana grows and many were not occupied by any residents," police said in a prepared statement. "This (drug operation) was a highly organized group of people and the operation was highly profitable."
