Narcotics officers say they shut down a marijuana grow operation on North Douglas Highway sometime Wednesday night.
Few details were released Thursday morning by Juneau Police Department officials, but they say as many as 181 plants were found after a search warrant was served at a residence at the 5000 block of the highway.
Along with the plants, grow equipment was also confiscated. Total value of everything seized was estimated at $200,000.
A tenant of the residence, 27-year old Scott Eberhardt, was charged with misconduct involving a controlled substance in the fourth degree and taken to Lemon Creek Correctional Center to await arraignment Thursday afternoon.
