PHOENIX -- A man is in custody after more than 650 marijuana plants were found in two Phoenix buildings.

Phoenix police said the plants are worth an estimated $1.3 million.

A police officer was on patrol Saturday evening when he smelled the strong odor of marijuana from a building near 25th Avenue and McDowell Road.

William Becker, 58, told police he was renting the space to a third party.

They served a search warrant on the building and discovered more than 300 potted marijuana plants.

Another search warrant was served at a second building near 30th Avenue and Thomas Road and more than 350 plants were found.

Police said Becker is being held on suspicion of cultivating and possessing marijuana for sale.
