Madison Co., Fla. (WTXL) - Investigators have busted what they call a major marijuana grow operation.

The bust was made Thursday at a home on South East Hammerly Street in Lee, Florida.

The raid turned up more than 100 marijuana plants.

Madison County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) investigators tell WTXL ABC27 there was a large scale operation inside...plus several make-shift living quarters.

According to MCSO, those running the operation were stealing electricity to keep it going.

So far, one suspect has been identified -- an individual from South Florida -- but no arrests have been made.
