Police discovered a marijuana growing operation this afternoon on a property just 25 feet from the back door of the Los Angeles Police Department's Topanga Station, authorities said.

The marijuana plants were discovered after a search warrant was served about 3 p.m. on the property in the 8400 block of Canoga Avenue, LAPD officer Gregory Baek said.

He said officers launched an investigation about a week ago after smelling marijuana. Investigators were at the scene, and no additional details were available.
