Seneca Falls, N.Y. -- The Seneca County Sheriff’s Office says it has shut down a large marijuana growing and sales operation in Seneca Falls.

Seneca County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics investigators searched the home of Michael S. O’Malley, 25, of 2502 Lower Lake Road, Seneca Falls and allegedly found “an elaborate, extensive and complex indoor hydroponics marijuana growing operation.”

Deputies say there were several rooms with “commercial grade vented exhaust systems, tented growing stations, extensive indoor grow lighting and watering systems.”

Investigators say they seized 68 marijuana plants, seven pounds of marijuana packaged for sale, five pounds of marijuana precursors, all with a street value of more than $40,000. Police also seized brass knuckles, a stun gun, cocaine and drugs, and over $5,000 in marijuana growing equipment, and more than $83,000 in cash from the house, a safety deposit box, and at least two bank accounts.

O’Malley is being held in the Seneca County Correctional Facility on $40,000 bail or $80,000 bond.

He has been charged with first-degree criminal possession of marijuana, fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, and unlawfully growing cannabis without a license.

More arrests are expected.
