|Productive operation, by the looks of it.|
Two brothers are in custody after Cleveland police executed search warrants last Friday and discovered an indoor marijuana growing operation they claimed had more than 1,000 plants.
Members of the Cleveland Division of Police Narcotics Unit and the Westlake Police Department worked “jointly” investigating the operation, reports WTAM 1100. As a result of the joint investigation, evidence was presented to the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office and the search warrants were issued.

When police entered the home in the 2300 block of Scranton Avenue, they found Todd West, 44, and his brother Timothy West, 46. Both were arrested.
The cops seized about 1,000 cannabis plants at the Scranton Road location, also executing another warrant in Westlake. Also confiscated were thousands of dollars in cash, indoor gardening equipment, and two vehicles.
Timothy West and Todd West were both charged with violating state drug laws; their cases will be presented to the Cuyahoga County Grand Jury for review, where additional charges will be requested.
