Local law-enforcement officers took down a suspected marijuana lab Saturday in Willard.
Huron County Sheriff's Deputy Ted Evans, along with officers from the Willard police department, converged on the residence at 982 Timothy Drive after receiving information regarding the growing of marijuana at that location.
When all was said and done, officers seized 198 marijuana plants, with a total street value of $198,000.
Those plants are now in evidence at the HCSO.
No one has been arrested.
The plants are to be dried out and sent to the crime lab where they will be weighed and verified they are marijuana.
That process has to take place to determine possible charges, said Huron County Sheriff's Detective Sgt. Josh Querin.
"We expect arrest warrants to be issued in the near future," Querin said.
Querin said multiple people were living at the Timothy Drive home.
A number of criminal tools were also confiscated.
"That is a substantial amount of marijuana," Querin said. "There were quite a few mature plants."
Querin said the marijuana was being grown at two locations on the property.
"The majority was in the basement," he added.
The raid took place at 4:30 p.m.
"The men and women of this office realize heroin still is the top priority," Sheriff Dane Howard said. "However, we enforce all the laws and that includes marijuana.
"Our focus is on heroin, but this case came before us and we are obligated to deal with it," Howard said. "This was a fairly significant operation.
"Deputy Evans and the Willard detectives worked closely on this case to bring some closure to it," he added.
