Sylvester, GA (WALB) - A Sylvester man turned himself in to police after they raided his Lakeview Drive home, and found an elaborate marijuana grow house operation inside.

Richard McMillan surrendered to police Tuesday. Police are still looking for Michele Epps.

There was an automatic light and watering system, with ventilation fans in a converted room in the back of the carport.

Investigators seized 24 mature marijuana plants, and 12 young stalks, plant food and fertilizer, and all the lamps and equipment. Police say they are not surprised the grow house was found in a nice neighborhood.

"This is a trend now," said Sylvester Police Chief Alfred H. Anderson. "To use decent neighborhoods to set up for manufacturing of marijuana."
