WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) — Police in Waterville, Maine, say they’ve never seen anything like the portable marijuana nursery they seized from two men pushing it down the street.

Police say officers investigated after receiving a report on Tuesday of two men pushing what appeared to be a huge toolbox down the street that was making a lot of noise.

Police Chief Joseph Massey says it turned out to be a self-contained marijuana-growing unit, with lights, fans and a watering system inside.

Massey tells the Morning Sentinel police found marijuana residue in the box, which is 4½-feet long, 2-feet wide and 4-feet tall.

Police say 34-year-old Justin Leibowitz was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.
