An illegal marijuana grow, with 76 plants worth about $76,000, was seized Thursday in Pueblo West, according to the sheriff’s office.

Deputies responded to a report that tenants had altered the electrical system of a home, on the 1100 block of Camino Santiago, to bypass the meter, the sheriff’s office said in a news release.

The residents could not be contacted Thursday, but a strong order of marijuana was noticeable near the residence.
