1 min read

Police have seized 216 marijuana plants and more than 250 pounds of processed marijuana from an illegal grow site in Fairfield. 

According to the Fairfield Police Department, they received anonymous tips from residents in the area of a possible marijuana grow site in the 1600 block of Kentucky Street.

Police launched an investigation and served a warrant for the property and residence on October 20. 

The FPD said their entry to the property was blocked by a pit bull guarding the home. A Humane Animal Services officer arrived and removed the pit bull and six other dogs. 

Once officers had access to the property, they found a total of 216 marijuana plants, over 250 pounds of processed marijuana, two Glock-style handguns, and a short-barrel AR-15 rifle. 

According to police, they needed several truckloads to remove all the plants from the property, some of which were as tall as eight feet. The plants’ odor was strong enough to reach at least a block away. 

The house was then red-tagged by code enforcement for various violations.
