    A man was arrested after authorities discovered a fully operational marijuana grow house in Leisure City, police said Thursday.

    The hydroponic lab was found inside the home in the 29100 block of Indiana Road as officers were investigating possible drug activity, Miami-Dade Police spokesman Det. Alvaro Zabaleta said.

    According to Zabaleta, when officers tried to talk to the homeowner, he closed the door and tried to flee out the back of the home.

    He was contained in the home and eventually surrendered, police said.

    Narcotics detectives obtained a search warrant and discovered the lab inside, and recovered about 21 pounds of marijuana with a street value of over $94,000.

    Police didn't identify the suspect or say what charges he'll face.
