A large illegal marijuana growing operation is discovered in the city of Shasta Lake Tuesday, the Shasta County Sheriff reported.

Deputies received a tip that a large scale indoor marijuana grow was taking place inside a commerical building on the 3800 block of Shasta Dam Boulevard, according to the Shasta County Sheriff's Office.

At around 7:30 p.m., the Shasta County Marijuana Investigative Team (SMIT) served a search warrant on two buildings at the property and discovered nearly 1500 marijuana plants.

Investigators also seized several items used for the commerical growing operation.

No one was inside the building at the time, and so far no arrests have been made.

The investigation is ongoing.
