HUNTINGTON COUNTY, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - The Indiana State Police, the Huntington County Sheriff's Department and two SWAT teams raided a massive underground marijuana growing operation Tuesday afternoon.

According to police they found nearly 200 marijuana plants.

More than four different agencies took part in the bust including up to 40 officers and K9's.

Nobody was home at the time of the raid but owner Shawn Karst was arrested later in the day once he was located.

Karst is being preliminary charged with possession of marijuana and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. An upgrade of charges is still a possibility.
