MONROE - A Monroe man was charged Tuesday after drug officers searched a Monroe home and found a suspected marijuana-growing operation last week.

Adam J. Douglas, 52, was arrested Friday afternoon after Monroe police and agents from the State Line Area Narcotics Team conducted a drug search at a home in the 2000 block of Haven Lane, on Monroe's north side.

Douglas has a preliminary hearing set for Sept. 11.
