Police responding to a domestic violence call in Dexter uncovered what they call a marijuana-growing operation in two adjacent apartments in the same building. Police say the nearly 200 marijuana plants seized during the operation late last month had a street value of about $60,000. It started when police interviewed a woman with visible facial injuries. She gave permission to enter her apartment, where police found what they called a growing operation with 128 plants. Police told the Bangor Daily News that a search of the other apartment in the building turned up 63 marijuana plants. One man was charged with felony offense of cultivating marijuana, because he had more than 100 plants, and with domestic assault. The resident of the other apartment was charged with a misdemeanor offense of cultivating marijuana.
