PERRY TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WDTN) – More than 200 marijuana plants, processed marijuana, several firearms, scales, packaging materials and computers were seized as part of a marijuana operation bust in Perry Township.

A search warrant was served Thursday at a residence on Westbrook Road. The investigation into the operation took a close look at the cultivation and the sales of the plant.

To help Perry Township police were the Clay Township, New Lebanon, Union and Brookville Police Departments, according to a release from the Perry Township Police Department.

The search also revealed a lighting and ventilating system, fertilizer and growing aids, according to the release.

“This was the largest marijuana grow discovered in the township to date. It was a significant operation and had been going for several years. The charges we seek will likely include illegal cultivation of marijuana, trafficking in marijuana, possession of marijuana, possession of criminal tools and possession of drug paraphernalia,” according to Chief Mike Rinehart.
