After a tip was phoned in, police shut down an indoor marijuana growing operation at 3004 McKittrick Court on Sunday but the suspects who set it up have not been arrested.
At 6:18 a.m. police received a tip about a possible indoor pot grow operation. They found a large warehouse which had been divided into four separate units. A drug-sniffing canine was brought to the exterior and alerted on spaces 1, 3, 4. After securing a warrant signed by a judge, police searched the facility at 4 p.m. They saw that the warehouse had been converted to a pot growing operation but most of the plants were gone, said Ceres Police Department spokesman Lt. Chris Perry. Police seized nine pounds of processed marijuana which had been packaged into one-pound bags.
