GLENPOOL -- A man was arrested Thursday after police found 260 marijuana plants at a house with a sophisticated cultivation system, a report shows.
Terry Lee Green, 30, was apprehended the day after police served a search warrant at the house in the 400 block of East 148th Circle, according to the report.
The house, which contained no furniture or personal items, had industrial-sized humidifiers, artificial lights and rows of large trays for the plants outfitted with water circulation devices, the report says.
The air conditioning vents had been rerouted and an additional breaker box had been installed to distribute more power to the lights, the report adds.
Green, who was arrested after police spotted his car in Glenpool about 2:40 p.m. Thursday, reportedly told police that he was not living at the house. He instead gave them an address in Tulsa, the arrest report says.
When police served a search warrant there, they found Xanax -- a prescription anti-anxiety drug -- and a pocket-sized weight scale, according to the report.
Green was booked into the Tulsa Jail early Friday on complaints of cultivating marijuana, maintaining a house where drugs are sold, possessing drugs and drug paraphernalia, and possessing marijuana within 1,000 feet of a school or park.
The house is near the Glenpool High School sports complex.
