Akron police say they uncovered a marijuana grow house in Northwest Akron late Friday.
Police went to the home on Treeside Drive, off North Hawkins Avenue, at around 11:30 Friday after a call about a domestic dispute.
One of the people in the home let police inside.
Lt. Rick Edwards says that something inside the house got the officers' attention.
"At that point, the officers...there was a strong odor of marijuana coming from the house," Lt. Edwards tells AkronNewsNow.com. "Not your typical where somebody was smoking marijuana, but like a grow operation, where you could smell the actual marijuana itself."
Lt. Edwards says they spotted pieces of marijuana in the house. The female occupant gave them permission to look around, and police say they found an extensive pot growing operation in the basement.
After a search warrant was obtained, police found over 180 marijuana plants in various stages of growth, 30 one-gallon jars filled with dried marijuana and over $30,000 dollars in cash in a shoebox in the home's bedroom.
The estimated street value of the marijuana is $50,000.
27 year-old Clinton Lockhart and 24 year-old Dominique Williams were arrested and charged with cultivating marijuana, possession of criminal tools and drug trafficking charges.
They were taken to the Summit County Jail, pending a court appearance Monday in Akron Municipal Court.
