Police on Thursday arrested a 49-year-old New Canaan man and charged him with operation of a drug factory.
Originally called April 30 to the Toby’s Lane home on a report of a domestic disturbance, officers while investigating saw a marijuana grow operation in plain view on the first floor of the residence, police said.
The man was charged with disorderly conduct, third-degree assault and reckless endangerment in connection with the domestic incident, police said.
The grow operation, which occupied two rooms at the home, included heat lamps, ventilation ducts, irrigation systems and multiple marijuana plants being cultivated (see photo above).
The New Canaan Police Investigative Section also obtained a search warrant and found more items related to the drug factory, officials said.
The man turned himself in to police at about 3:15 p.m. on June 13.
He was released on $75,000 and scheduled to appear June 25 in state Superior Court in Norwalk.
