A Fort Wayne man faces felony charges after police found more than 300 marijuana plants growing in his house in June, court documents said.

A tip led the Allen County Drug Task Force to raid Troy Gongaware’s house at 432 Watkins St., near Swinney Park, on June 5, according to authorities.

In the basement, officers discovered more than 300 plants, many over 5 feet tall, court documents stated.
