TRURO – A 31-year-old man was arrested Monday morning after a marijuana grow operation was found in his residence.

Firefighters discovered the grow op when they responded to a report of a fire in an apartment on East Prince Street. While notifying residents in the building of the fire, they came across the operation.

More than 40 plants were found in an apartment, which was not the same apartment where the fire started.

The man remains in police custody and the investigation continues.
