A search of a Laurel man's property led authorities to confiscate 57 marijuana plants, Riverhead Town police said Wednesday.

Anton Van Der Wetering, 43, of 550 Eagles Nest, is charged with growing marijuana without a license after the plants were found Tuesday at a Sound Avenue property in Riverhead.

Riverhead police and the East End Drug Task Force conducted the warrant and discovered the plants, police said.

Police said a box truck used to transport plants was impounded.
