After consent was given to search a residence, a marijuana grow operation of approximately 50 plants was found in the basement of the farm house with an estimated $30,000 street value. As of approximately 11 a.m. on Thursday, September 26, 2013 the suspect had not been arrested. At least 35 officers from Woodstock, Lake in the Hills, McHenry Sheriffs department, and the U.S. Marshall's Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force went to 20 different locations around McHenry county Thursday morning to arrest suspects with drug-related felony warrants. These types of criminal roundups are clustered together in order to use these resources in a cost effective manner. Today, 16 of the 20 warrants ended in arrests, and at least 10 will now have additional charges based on the recovery of paraphernalia and other charges.
