A burglary investigation in Butler County has led to the discovery of a marijuana growing operation.

Deputies responded to a home in the 1300 block of Grandview Avenue in St. Clair Township on Monday for a report of a possible burglary.

Upon arrival, officers forced entry and checked the residence for possible burglary suspects.

No one was found, but police did discover a marijuana growing operation in the basement.
