A man has been charged in connection with the seizure of marijuana plants during a search by the Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team. 

Earlier this month, CNT undercover agents got a tip that marijuana was being grown at a home in the 2200 block of Bonaventure Road.

Agents started an investigation that included another home in the 2300 block of East 38th Street. CNT executed a search on Tuesday of both homes.

Gregory Paul Sucher, 56, was arrested during the search without incident, according to CNT. He's charged with manufacturing marijuana, possession of marijuana more than one ounce, possession of a controlled substance (steroids) and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. 

CNT searched of the Bonaventure Road home and discovered a growing operation of 30 marijuana plants that had elaborate lighting, temperature gauges, items commonly used for marijuana distribution, according to the CNT.

A search of the East 38th Street home resulted in the seizure of several ounces of marijuana, steroids and a handgun, according to the CNT. 

The marijuana seized could have a street value of up to $30,000.           

Sucher is being held at the Chatham County Detention Center.
