Police said a sergeant was in the area following up on a stolen materials tip unrelated to this case. The officer reported he could smell marijuana nearby. That prompted police to get search warrants for the buildings in the 500 block of Industrial Park.
The former granite company looked abandoned, but police inside was a very large marijuana distribution center. The plants were located in two different rooms.
So far, no arrests have been made in the case.
