Springfield Police Bust Up Pot Growing Operation

Springfield police have busted a brazen marijuana growing operation, right on one of the city’s main drags.

The Illinois Times reports more than 1,000 pot plants and growing equipment were seized from a building at 8th and South Grand that had formerly housed a dry cleaning business.

36-year-old Zachary Pierson and 31-year-old Scott Foster will be arraigned Monday on multiple counts, and could face six to 30 years in prison.
