800 marijuana plants seized in Detroit building

DETROIT (AP) - Police say one person has been taken into custody after officers found a large stash of marijuana in a warehouse on Detroit's east side.

The Detroit Police Department says in a news release that about 800 plants were seized. A 37-year-old man was taken into custody.

Sgt. Eren Stephens says the plants were removed Thursday after Detroit police received a tip on where they could be found.

Officers found a marijuana-growing operation inside the building. They boxed the plants and hauled them down to police headquarters.

Stephens says the seizure is part of an ongoing investigation.
