Two Suffolk County men were arrested for cultivating a marijuana growing farm on the property of a plant nursery in Old Brookville. Police say that on Friday, September 20 at 9:48 p.m. Old Brookville police, along with the Nassau County Police Canine Unit, responded to the Old Brookville Nurseries located at 5300 Northern Boulevard, after receiving a call about suspicious people loitering on the property.

According to police, during a search of the property, specially-trained police dog “Thunder” discovered Bryan Zembreski, 36, of East Northport hiding in the woods next to four large bags of marijuana.
