PENN HILLS, Pa. (KDKA) – A man is facing charges after investigators say he walked them through his “large scale and elaborate” growing operation, where officers confiscated hundreds of suspected marijuana plants with a street value of about $500,000.

Police say information they received of a suspected grow house led them to Herbert Drive in Penn Hills where they found Kenneth Creekmore trimming the lawn outside his home.

Officers say they explained that they knew Creekmore was growing marijuana, and they asked if they could search his house. It was a request in which “Creekmore was entirely cooperative,” police say, and court paperwork says he “spoke freely with investigators regarding his cultivating and selling” of marijuana.
