Two men were arrested Monday on charges of growing marijuana valued at more than $1.2 million in a Northwest Side residence, the Pima County Sheriff's Department said.
Richard Allen Weaver, 71, and Clinton Andrew Guthrie, 36, were arrested after PCSD Counter Narcotics Alliance investigators found an indoor marijuana-growing operation in two rooms at the home in the 5300 block of W. El Camino del Cerro, said PCSD spokesman Deputy Tom Peine.
Investigators found 367 plants and hydroponic growing equipment, an assault rifle and two handguns at the home, Peine said.
Weaver and Guthrie also are accused of selling high-grade pot for $3,500 a pound, Peine said.
The two were booked into the Pima County jail on drug-cultivation charges, Peine said.
