ROME TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Authorities say they've seized about 7,000 marijuana plants worth an estimated $7 million from a property in Lenawee County.
Michigan State Police say troopers from the Office of Monroe Narcotics Investigations made the seizure on Monday from a greenhouse, barn and several fields in Rome Township, located about 65 miles southwest of Detroit.
A husband and wife in their 60s were arrested. Names weren't released Tuesday morning pending arraignment.
Police say plants ranged from seedlings to mature ones ready for harvest, and several more fields were being prepared for growing. Investigators went to the property following a tip that was given to a detective with the Lenawee County sheriff's department.
Authorities also seized were grow lights, a watering system and ventilation equipment, as well about 25 pounds of processed marijuana.
