Auburn Police say they've arrested a suspect who was growing a large amount of marijuana in two locations.

Multiple search warrants were executed by members of the Finger Lakes Drug Task Force and the State Police after a lengthy investigation.

Two properties were searched, one on York Street in the City of Auburn and another in a wooded area on Shortcut Road in the Town of Sterling.

Police seized 121 marijuana plants at both locations in various stages of growth.

53 year old Ronald Remaley has been arrested in the case. He was charged with Manufacturing a Controlled Substance, a charge associated with growing more than 100 plants. He's been arraigned in US District Court and is being held pending further proceedings.
