Authorities say they’ve busted an alleged marijuana growing operation following a raid on a man’s Laurel home Tuesday.
Anton Van De Wetering was arrested and charged with growing marijuana without a license.
Riverhead Town Police said the 43-year-old suspect had 57 pot plants at his Eagles Nest home.
A joint investigation with The East End Drug Task Force found the alleged grower transported the plants in a box truck, police said.
The truck was impounded and Van De Wetering will be arraigned at Riverhead Town Justice Court.
Police added that additional charges are pending a Suffolk County Crime Lab analysis.
