BUFORD — A man fleeing from a DUI checkpoint led Gwinnett County police to a marijuana grow operation Saturday, with officers seizing more than $300,000 worth of marijuana from the Buford residence, police said.

Just after 10 p.m., members of Gwinnett County’s DUI task force attempted to pull over a man later identified as 23-year-old Charles Byrd of Sugar Hill, Gwinnett County police spokesman Officer Brian Kelly said.

Byrd reportedly fled on foot, locking himself in the house on the 5000 block of Cumming Highway.
