Laurel authorities uncover marijuana growing operation in a residential area

Laurel Police and the Jones County Sheriff's Department busted a large indoor marijuana factory.

Police say a false alarm about an armed robbery led them to a home at 41 Flynt Road where they  found an elaborate marijuana operation.  Authorities arrested Michael Greenshaw, 30, and  Rachel Alexander, 22, on charges of manufacturing marijuana.

The city and county credit the bust to the quick thinking of Officer Layne Bounds and Deputy Regina Newton.
