Officers from several area police agencies were able to identify approximately 375 possible locations of people involved with the indoor cultivation of marijuana, spanning from Wichita, Kan., to Columbia, Mo., on Wednesday.

One of the possible Independence locations, however, turned out to be a misunderstanding.

An Independence man, who remained anonymous during an interview with The Examiner’s news partner, KMBC, said Independence police arrived at his door Wednesday, only to find hundreds of tomato plants growing in his home.

Tom Gentry, spokesperson for Independence police, confirmed Thursday that police went to the home as part of  a “knock and talk,” or general inquiry into what was reported to be illegal activity.

Out of the approximately 19 homes Independence police checked on Wednesday, two illegal growing operations were found, yielding a total of 116 plants, 30 pounds of processed marijuana and 10 firearms, two of which were stolen, according to information provided by Gentry.

Approximately 30 law enforcement agencies from federal, state, and local law enforcement followed up on leads Wednesday serving search warrants on residences throughout western Missouri and eastern Kansas.

Final figures on how many homes were searched and what was found were released Thursday afternoon:

40 indoor grows seized 1,703 marijuana plants seized 14.5 pounds of processed marijuana seized 1 pound K-2 seized 50 psilocybin mushrooms seized 92 grams of methamphetamine seized 3 ounces of cocaine seized 46 weapons seized 4 vehicles were seized $3,600 in currency seized $5,000 in property seized 8 felony arrests made
