A man and woman were at the home with their two young children, Garman said. Clark County Children Services was also called to the home to investigate the welfare of the children, he said.
The Clark County Sheriff’s Office, R.A.N.G.E Task Force and the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation assisted in the execution of the search warrant, Garman said.
The bust is the third large growing operation found in Clark County in the past 12 months, including about 500 plants worth about $1 million found in five rental properties throughout the county last year. In February, about 250 plants were removed from a large service garage on North Hampton road in Pike Twp.
Technology has allowed the sheriff’s office to better investigate these types of operations, he said. The public also sent in tips, Garman said.
“We started putting the puzzle pieces together and they all came together today,” he said.
