COVENTRY TOWNSHIP, Ohio- While investigating suspected drug activity, the Summit County Drug Task Force discovered more than 400 marijuana plants on Tuesday.

An anonymous tip lead the task force to a house on Upham Road in Coventry Township. There, officers found 129 marijuana plants and thousands of dollars in growing equipment, the Summit County Sheriff’s Office said.

But the task force was just getting started.

Using information from the first bust, officers searched two houses on Lakota Drive. At first, they seized $20,000 in cash, several rifles and 24 pot plants.

Next door, they located 325 marijuana plants and more than 20 pounds of pot. The sheriff’s office said the entire residence was dedicated to growing marijuana, with stations throughout the house for trimming, drying and packaging.

James Eubank, 47, of Coventry Township, was arrested and charged with cultivation. More charges are expected.
