— Police this week seized marijuana valued at $20,000 as well as marijuana growing supplies from a house in a rural area east of Beloit, according to a news release from the Rock County Sheriff's Office.

No one was living in the house at 5801 E. Colley Road, Beloit, when deputies executed the search warrant Monday, Capt. Todd Christiansen said.


"We're trying to find out who last lived there," he said.


In addition to an indoor marijuana growing operation that included potting soil, chemicals, lights and instructional literature, the house contained other personal belongings, Christiansen said.


Police also found marijuana that was processed and packaged, he said.


Police do not have enough information to make an arrest at this time, he said.


All the marijuana weighed 19.3 pounds and was worth about $20,000.


Deputies from the sheriff's office's special investigations unit as well as officers from the Edgerton Police Department executed the search warrant at the property, which is located in Turtle Township.


The case remains under investigation.
