BELLEVUE, Wash. — A 44-year-old man was arrested after an anonymous tip led to a lengthy investigation and the uncovering of a large-scale marijuana grow operation at a Bellevue home.
Bellevue police said detectives teamed up with Washington State Patrol and the State Department of Ecology and served a warrant at the Overlake home on Wednesday.
The suspect was arrested at his door, officials said.
Detectives said they searched the home and recovered more than 300 marijuana plants. The plants were reportedly in various stages of development.
“Approximately 340 pounds of marijuana was destroyed,” according to a news release from police.
