ATHENS COUNTY, Ohio (WSAZ) -- Investigators say a marijuana grow house was raided Tuesday, and nearly 50 pounds of marijuana worth about $200,000 was seized, according to the Athens County sheriff.
Members of Narcotics Enforcement Team raided the house along Lafollette Road in Millfield, Ohio.
Sheriff Pat Kelly says Donald Cribbet, 44, of Stewart was arrested at the home.
Sheriff Kelly says no one permanently lived in the home. Kelly says the upper floor rooms were used for processing, and rooms in the basement were used to cultivate the marijuana. Buds from the marijuana were being processed and sealed for transaction.
Kelly says a similar operation was discovered recently in Morgan County, Ohio.
NET detectives are working with Morgan County deputies to investigate the connection between the two operations.
Cribbet was taken to the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail.
