WAUKESHA-CBS 58 has obtained the video from a record breaking indoor marijuana grow operation.

While still photos had been released before, this is the first time the video taken by police who made the bust has been shown to the public.

It is the most extreme cases that narcotics agents have uncovered of a home that was specifically rented and modified to grow marijuana, just feet from other homes with families and right across the street from a church in Brookfield.

"Before we used to see people growing plants for personal use, " says Capt. Charles Wood, Commander of the Waukesha County Metro Drug Enforcement Group or Metro, "but the increase of homes specifically modified to grow marijuana and the sheer number of plants to hundreds is what's alarming."
