BELMONT, Mich. (May 1, 2014) — Police said they confiscated 66 mature plants and a high-tech churn used to make marijuana butter during a marijuana grow operation raid Thursday in Belmont.

The raid was conducted on Herrington Avenue near Belmont Avenue by the Metropolitan Enforcement Team, according to MIchigan State Police.

Mature plants with a street value between $3,000 and $4,000 each were discovered in two separate buildings along with several pieces of high-tech equipment, including the churn.

Police also said they also seized grow lights and hydroponic growing systems, among other pieces of equipment.
