BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (WOOD) – An arrest warrant is being sought against a man after authorities discovered a marijuana-growing operation inside his business.

A Calhoun County sheriff’s deputy served a subpoena Wednesday at the business in the 300 block of Capital Avenue SW in Battle Creek.

While inside, the deputy smelled an overwhelming odor of marijuana, according to a police news release.

A search warrant was obtained and the Calhoun County Special Response Team executed it around 3:45 p.m.

Authorities noticed two rooms containing 40 marijuana plants.

A second search warrant was obtained, this time for the business owner’s residence in the 11000 block of South M-66 in Barry County.

Authorities seized $3,000 in cash at this scene.

The suspect, a 41-year-old Bellevue man, could face manufacturing marijuana charges.
