— Janesville police officials say they're extremely pleased with the investigations leading to the arrest of three suspects and the closing of two, separate, marijuana growing operations.

Sgt. Jim Holford is supervisor of the Street Crimes Unit, which handled the investigations. He says it was a "fluke" that they found the two grow operations on two consecutive days this week.

Holford says the investigations tell him that the three suspects may be selling their illegal product locally, and to areas outside the city.

He says there is no evidence to indicate the suspects knew each other or that the operations were connected.

Holford says they'll continue to look for other illegal drug activity but says they probably won't find a 3rd grow operation any time soon.
