DETROIT (WWJ) – A major marijuana growing operation on Detroit east side has been shut down by police, and it’s all thanks to a tip from a concerned citizen.
More than 400 plants with a street value of roughly $1 million were seized in a raid Tuesday at a warehouse in the area of 8 Mile Road and Van Dyke Avenue.
Police were reportedly alerted to the growing operation through an anonymous tip. A search warrant revealed a gigantic operation that was illegally supplying marijuana dispensaries in the city, according to reports.
No arrests at the time, but police have identified a suspect.
An investigation is ongoing.
