A large marijuana growing operation was busted Thursday by the Goodyear Police Department's narcotics unit.
Police were tipped off by an informant and officers arrived at 6:30 a.m. to serve a search warrant on the property at 133rd Avenue and Beverly.
Officers said they located a separate building with about 100 marijuana plants growing inside.
Three people, two men and one woman, were taken into custody, according to Goodyear police Spokeswoman Lisa Kutis.
The Goodyear narcotics unit is only about 6 months old, and this was their first big bust.
