COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (CBS4) – Police in Commerce City made an arrest after discovering a suspected marijuana grow operation on Monday.

Commerce City Police Department Special Services Unit executed a search warrant on a residence in the 9600 block of East 113th Avenue.

“The search warrant was in conjunction with an investigation by the North Metro Drug Task Force on a suspected marijuana grow operation believed to be taking place at the residence,” Chris Dickey with Commerce City police said in a statement. “Concerned neighbors had contacted the police about erratic activity and a foul smell coming from the location.”

Police arrested a 51-year-old man at the residence.

“It was determined he had a large marijuana grow operation in his basement and garage, and had also made several structural modifications to the residence to accommodate this operation,” Dickey said.

About 250 marijuana plants were found.

    Oh boy, police wasted more tax payer dollars shutting down a marijuana grower. If you really wanted to shut down harmful industries, you’d eliminate breweries, wineries, distilleries and tobacco retailers! Oh yeah that’s right, these industries pay off our politicians to ignore the damage that they do to people while at the same time making sure that a virtually harmless substance like marijuana remains illegal. Legalizing marijuana would generate billions in tax revenue, but I guess we just can’t have a foul smell and erratic activity. Unless of course that smell or activity is related to the liquor industry.
