State police arrested a Pomfret Man on Monday after they say he was growing marijuana plants on his property.

Police said Shawn Cook, 56, had 15 fully mature pot plants on his property on Covell Road.

The arrest comes after state police conducted a marijuana eradication operation in several towns in eastern Connecticut back in September. That operation included the Massachusetts Army National Guard. In all, 80 plants were seized during the operation, state police said.

The investigation always included Groton City police, Groton Town police, and UConn police.
