Loves Park police say a 70-year-old man was arrested Friday for an alleged marijuana growing operation.

Police say Gary Donaldson was taken into custody following an anonymous tip that he was growing marijuana at his home in the 300 block of Pennsylvania Avenue.

Donaldson was charged with possession with intent to deliver over 5,000 grams of cannabis and violation of the cannabis control act.

Donaldson was allegedly in possession with more than 5 plants but less than 20, police say.

He was taken to the Winnebago County Jail.
