A marijuana grow operation in the 26000 block of Geneva Street in New Boston was discovered on May 26 following the execution of multiple search warrants by the Huron Township Police and the Western Wayne Community Resource Team.
50 marijuana plants with a street value of over $150,000 were recovered during the search.
One person was arrested in regards to outstanding felony warrants.
“The executions of these search warrants were about much more than just Marijuana. It is about the quality of life issues that are created for the residents that live nearby. There are great people that live in this neighborhood and they deserve our support. We need to create a safe environment for people to live and kids to play,” said Huron Township Police Chief Everette Robbins.
Robbins said the department began to take a more proactive approach in the neighborhood following an incident on May 5 when police responded to a call about a man chasing a group of males with a handgun.
“We want to make it clear to everyone that activity that negatively affects any of our neighborhoods will not be tolerated and will be handled quickly and appropriately. We appreciate the Western Wayne CRT Team and Western Wayne Narcotics Unit who continue to be a huge asset to our Township. We will use any resources necessary to make our residents feel safe in their homes and neighborhoods,” he said.
