A tip led police to a southwest suburban home that police say was the center of a major marijuana-growing operation.

Officers executed a search warrant Tuesday in the 7800-block of Mason in Burbank. Once inside, they say they found guns, cash and more than 100 cannabis plants.

They were reportedly growing with the help of an intricate ventilation and lighting system. Police say the drugs have a street value of more than $270,000.

Anthony Spiewak is charged with drug possession and unlawful use of a weapon.
