WASILLA (AP) -- Alaska State Troopers confiscated 243 marijuana plants from a home in Meadow Lakes, near Wasilla.
Troopers responded to the home at about 2 a.m. Wednesday when someone at the home called 911 and then hung up.
When troopers got to the home they found a large, hydroponic commercial marijuana-growing operation in the basement of the home. The largest plant was more than 9 feet tall, troopers said.
Troopers also found processed marijuana and associated growing equipment. The estimated street value of the plants is $486,000.
The man and woman living at the home were not arrested, but troopers have forwarded charges to the district attorney's office.
