PPD bust pot grow house

The Petersburg Police Department and other law enforcement officials took down a commercial marijuana grow operation last month.

An official from PPD said investigators had been receiving complaints regarding drug activity around the 100 and 200 block of South Nordic Dr.

After an investigation of an unspecified amount of time, police entered the structure the night of July 26 where they found growing materials, live plants and more than five pounds of marijuana worth a street value of $35,000-$40,000.

Charges are still pending and the investigation is still ongoing.

PPD worked with Southeast Alaska Cities Against Drugs during the investigation.
