Roanoke Rapids police Tuesday seized items consistent with an indoor marijuana growing operation and continue their investigation.

Police arrived at the residence in the 600 block of Williams Street around 2:30 p.m. after receiving complaints of an operation inside the residence, Chief Chuck Hasty said in a statement.
The complaints and subsequent investigation led Investigator Chris Babb to apply for a search warrant which was executed with assistance from the City County Drug Task Force.
Investigators seized multiple items consistent with growing, cultivating and processing marijuana.
Babb said grow lights were seized but declined to elaborate on what else was taken or how sophisticated the operation was.
Hasty said in the statement investigators also seized multiple items of drug paraphernalia, electronics and several weapons.
No one was home at the time the search warrant was executed and charges are pending completion of the investigation.
