BRUNSWICK HILLS, Ohio - Brunswick Hills police were investigating a dog bite and ended up finding a marijuana grow operation.
While responding to 46-year-old Leslee B. Dunlap’s house on Substation Road, detectives said they noticed a strong smell of marijuana. Brunswick Hills police said the Medina County Drug Task Force then checked out the property by helicopter.
Officers seized more than 1,000 grams of marijuana and about 60 pot plants from Dunlap’s backyard, police said.
"It was good police work by Detective Sopkovich and Officer Fisher" said Brunswick Hills Police Chief Sharon MacKay, in a news release, "and an excellent example of multi-agency cooperation leading to the indictment and arrest of a serious threat to our community."
A warrant was issued for Dunlap’s arrest on Tuesday and he was arrested on charges of cultivating marijuana on Thursday.
