A two-month police and Drug Enforcement Administration investigation turned up more than 60 marijuana plants.
Police arrested 39-year-old Aaron Smiley Friday following a raid at his 49 Tannery Rd. home, according to Southwick Police Chief David Ricardi.
Authorities recovered 67 marijuana plants, $6,000 in cash and a handgun from inside the residence, Ricardi said.
The plants were worth approximately $60,000, but the street value of the marijuana once harvested, dried and cured would be close to $100,000, Ricardi said.
Smiley was charged with possession of a class D substance, possession of a firearm without a license, improper storage of a firearm and manufacturing a class D substance, he said.
