A Glenview man was operating a marijuana grow house from his rental home, where guns and children also were present, the Cook County sheriff's office announced Friday.

Juro Konstantinov, 33, of the 1400 block of Evergreen Terrace, has been charged with felony possession of cannabis and five counts of possession of a firearm without a firearms owners identification card. Police said there also is an arrest warrant for Konstantinov from Monroe County, N.Y., for trafficking in stolen property.

Officers with the sheriff's evictions unit were executing a court order against Konstantinov for failure to pay rent when they discovered the grow house, police said.

Fourteen mature plants and thirty seedlings, along with drug and grow house paraphernalia, were in plain view in several rooms of the 3,100-square-foot home. Police said they also seized 5000 grams of cannabis with an estimated street value of $40,000.

A search uncovered two pistols, two rifles and a shotgun, along with large quantities of ammunition. All of the weapons were loaded.

Because Konstantinov's children, ages eight and three were present, the Department of Children and Family Services was contacted to arrange for their welfare.

Konstantinov is in the process of being extradited to New York.
