In the heart of White Plains.
(02/13/10) WHITE PLAINS – White Plains police say they discovered a major marijuana laboratory stocked with up to 100 plants and arrested two suspects Saturday.
Investigators say the illegal drug operation was set up inside a one-bedroom apartment at 235 South Lexington Ave., which contained a sophisticated irrigation system, humidifiers and special lamps.
Police say the type of marijuana being grown inside the apartment was hydroponic, or water-based, making for a more potent intoxication. They estimate the street value of the plants in the tens of thousands of dollars.
The two men who were arrested during the bust were taken to the White Plains jail for questioning.
