CHANDLER, Ariz. -- Police officers arrested a 25-year-old man on drug charges after they found him growing marijuana inside his Chandler home.

Officers conducted a traffic stop near McQueen and Pecos roads Sunday night and noticed a strong odor of marijuana coming from a home in the area.

Detective David Ramer with the Chandler Police Department said officers obtained a search warrant for the home on South Jesse Street and located a large marijuana grow operation.

Ramer said officers found 332 potted marijuana plants and other equipment to grow and cultivate marijuana.

Sir Jorien Dwayne Marcette Jackson was located in the home and booked for possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana for sale, producing marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

"This is the largest marijuana grow operation seizure in Chandler by patrol officers," Ramer said in a news release.
