Bellaire Police, acting on a tip, arrived at an unoccupied house on Thursday and discovered a healthy crop of marijuana growing in an outdoor garden, and under grow lights indoors.
Police Chief Mike Kovalyk says the landlord gave them permission to search the house at 325 Wagner Avenue, and they found a total of about 30 large healthy plants.
According to water department records, no one was living there. Police say two neighbors had earlier reported that potted marijuana plants had been left in their yards.
