TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A Casas Adobes man will face drug charges after authorities dismantled a marijuana grow operation at his residence, police said.

Pima County Sheriff's Department Narcotics and Special Investigation Section detectives attempted to talk to the residents in the 8800 block of N. Marathon Drive Tuesday when responding to reports of suspicious activity in the area.

Authorities noticed a man attempting to exit the back door in an apparent attempt to leave the property but was quickly apprehended and questioned about the suspicious activity.

Detectives obtained a warrant for the residence, where they found a marijuana growing operation. Many of the plants were confiscated as evidence, according to police.

The suspect told authorities he was not well and was shortly transported to a local hospital.

Police say he will face charges of illegally processing or producing marijuana and of possession of drug paraphernalia once he is released from the hospital.
