Three Jefferson City residents were arrested Friday for having a marijuana grow operation in a home.

Investigators with Jefferson City police and the MUSTANG Drug Task Force searched a home in the 2900 block of Kenborg Hills and found what they describe as an active grow operation in the basement.
