SPRINGVILLE — Police arrested a Springville man early this morning on charges of growing more than 500 marijuana plants on his property.

While drug-related arrests are not uncommon in Springville, Lt. Stan Eggen said this bust was one of the biggest he has seen in years.

Eggen would not say how police learned the suspect was growing marijuana, ranging from sprouts to mature plants, in a shed in the 200 South block of 400 East. Police hope to bring federal charges against the suspect.
