Police Blotter: Grow Operation Ends in Arrest
The following information is gathered from the Departments of Public Safety of the Grosse Pointes. Arrests do not indicate conviction.
Grosse Pointe Park police arrested a 59-year-old man Aug. 10 after following up on a tip that he was growing marijuana in his home. Officers checked out the tip first and confirmed that indeed there was a grow operation in the home in the 900 block of Trombley.
A search warrant was served on the home about 11 a.m. Aug. 10, where officers gathered evidence. The case has been sent to the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office. The man was arrested somewhere else, according to a report.
This is the second marijuana grow operation discovered in the Park in the last year. In a similar situation last summer, Grosse Pointe Park police arrested two men after searching a home and discovering a large grow operation. Both pled down their cases to misdemeanor convictions in Third Circuit Court.
