SUISUN CITY — The Solano County Sheriff’s Office uncovered a million-dollar marijuana grow in a Suisun City house and arrested one man Tuesday afternoon.
Detectives from the Sheriff’s Office, the California Multi-Jurisdictional Methamphetamine Enforcement Team and the Solano County Narcotics Enforcement Team were contacted just after noon by Suisun police about a large marijuana grow inside a home on the 500 block of Wigeon Way, according to a press release from the Sheriff’s Office.
Detectives executed a search warrant at the residence and found that two rooms were dedicated to growing marijuana, according to the release. The house also had several modifications, including added walls, an air filtration system and rerouted electrical services, according to the release.
All told, officers confiscated 485 marijuana plants with a potential street value of nearly $1.46 million and about 15 ounces of processed marijuana, valued at around $4,500, according to the release.
The house was deemed uninhabitable and Pacific Gas & Electric Co. was called to the home to disconnect the power.
Detectives arrested Arthur Creggett, 22, of Suisun City, on suspicion of marijuana cultivation and possession of more than one ounce of marijuana.
Creggett was booked into the Solano County jail and was later released after posting $15,000 bail.
