A suspect from Laurium is facing a drug charge after police discovered a marijuana grow operation at his home.

Laurium Police responded to a Breaking and Entering on Calumet Street, along with officers from the Michigan State Police, the Keweenaw County Sheriff’s Deparment, Calumet Police and Lake Linden Police.

A neighbor reported the sound of breaking glass and saw one person near the scene.

Officers searched the residence for suspects with the K-9 Unit from Keweenaw County but any suspects had fled.

A suspected marijuana grow operation was found in the home.  The street value of the drugs is reportedly valued at $46,000.

The home owner was contacted when he returned home.

The marijuana was seized and Houghton County Prosecutor Michael Makinen issued an arrest warrant for one count of Controlled Substance-Delivery/Manufacture of Marijuana.

The suspect’s name is being withheld pending arraignment in 97th District Court.

The investigation into the B&E continues.  Detectives from UPSET were also called to the scene, as were deputies from the Houghton County Sheriff’s Office.
