Police say a routine bail check at a residence on Swan Lake Avenue Sunday, Nov. 3, revealed an alleged marijuana growing operation that took up two full rooms in the home and resulted in several charges for the woman residing there.

Tami Lynn Day, 50, was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana, possession of schedule Z drugs and marijuana cultivation as a result of the 11 a.m. bail check at her residence.

Belfast Detective Sgt. Bryan Cunningham said Monday morning, Nov. 4, it remains unclear exactly how much marijuana police found inside the home, but officers found the plants in various stages of growth that took up at least two full rooms. An addition on the rear of the home also contained marijuana plants and growing equipment including lights and a ventilation system.

"it was a pretty elaborate setup," said Cunningham.

Day is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday, Dec. 17.
