A tip from a utility crew led Modesto police to a $1 million marijuana growing operation Monday in a home owned by the city in the Dry Creek river plain.
The city leases the house to a man through Wolverine Property Management, which has overseen five homes located within city parks since 2005.
Modesto is reviewing its relationship with the company. Its contract with the city calls on Wolverine Property Management to conduct site visits.
"We're certainly going to have a conversation with the company," Parks Director Julie Hannon said.
Police arrested four men on suspicion of cultivating marijuana at the property, a large white farmhouse near the El Vista bridge. Officers are looking for a fifth man in connection with the bust.
