An investigation by the Clark-Skamania Drug Task Force is ongoing to determine who was behind what could have become an indoor marijuana grow operation at a home in Ridgefield.

Detectives recovered hoods, ballasts, filters and a variety of other equipment and supplies that could be used to manufacture marijuana, according to a news release from the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.

The task force responded early Friday to a rental home at 1924 S. Osprey Drive in response to reports of suspicious activity.

The residence was unoccupied.

It was not clear whether any drugs were recovered.

“The inside of the home contained obvious signs of the beginnings of an indoor marijuana grow operation,” according to the release prepared by Sgt. Scott Schanaker.

No arrests have been made.
