One person was arrested yesterday in connection with an illegal indoor marijuana grow in the Westlake neighborhood of Natomas.

At about 9 a.m. on Nov. 1, the Sacramento Police Department’s marijuana compliance team served a search warrant at a home on the 3600 block of Rydners Way, according to spokesperson Officer Karl Chan.

Upon serving the warrant, law enforcement located 60 marijuana plants, 13 pounds of methamphetamine, 1 pound of cocaine, 1 pound of heroin and a gun.

A 19-year-old adult male was arrested on felony charges relating to narcotics and weapons, said Chan.
