OKLAHOMA CITY -

Oklahoma City police seized around a million dollars in drugs being grown and sold in two illegal grow operations.

Last week, May 11, vice police along with the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority (OMMA) raided a metro lawn care company near North Classen and Wilshire Boulevard.

According to police, officers went to investigate a tip claiming A Plus Lawns and Services was involved in the illegal grow of marijuana.

While Milo Wilson was operating what appeared to be a legitimate lawn care business-- investigators say for weeks undercover surveillance caught Wilson often entering two other buildings in the same business complex.

Then on May 11 police and the OMMA confronted him about a suspected grow operation.

Police said Wilson unlocked the buildings revealing a commercial operation complete with grow lights and reflectors.

All together court filings show investigators recovered close to 600 marijuana plants in various stages of growth, 86 pounds of packaged marijuana, and boxes of marijuana edibles. They also found thousands of dollars in cash, guns.

They said while Wilson claimed he was licensed to grow and operate unmarked businesses DG Growers and A Grade Organics of Oklahoma he didn't have one.

According to the OMMA, DG Grows was once licensed, but that license has since expired.

Police say both buildings housing the marijuana were equipped with multiple cameras inside and out.

They plan to review the video to see who was buying marijuana.
