Enumclaw police forced their way into a commercial building Friday morning, arrested six people and confiscated more than 360 marijuana plants.

At 6 a.m., officers and narcotics detectives with the Enumclaw Police Department served a search warrant at a Cole Street industrial park.

After knocking and announcing their presence, officers made a forced entry into the building. Inside, they discovered a sophisticated grow operation that included modified lighting, ventilation and air conditioning, as well as modifications to the building.

Officers arrested six adult suspects – four men and two women – on investigation of possession of marijuana (over 40 grams). They were screened by Fire District 28 aid crews prior to being transported to the Enumclaw jail.

City and District 28 building inspectors were summoned to the scene to conduct building and fire safety inspections.

No injuries were reported.
