INDUSTRY (CBSLA.com) —  Officials in Moreno Valley say three people were arrested and $1.5 million in pot was seized in a home grow operation in Industry.

Special Assignment Deputies from Industry Sheriff’s Station of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, accompanied by detectives from a US Marshals Fugitive Task Force, arrested three suspects for cultivation of marijuana for sales on Thursday.

The arrests were made in a house on the 16400 block of Quarter Horse Road.

Deputies also recovered 417 marijuana plants — in various stages of growth — worth over $1.5 million. Authorities said they also confiscated $100,000 worth of hydroponic equipment used to cultivate the plants.

During a surveillance operation, deputies saw a suspect, Luc An, 43, exiting a residence on Quarter Horse Road accompanied by two other men.

Deputies contacted and arrested An, for a parole violation and cultivation for sales of marijuana. After confirming he lived at the residence, deputies conducted a search of the home and discovered a large marijuana grow operation.

Officials also arrested the two additional suspects; Eddie Tran, 21, and Johnny Yuen, 22, both of the San Gabriel Valley.

All three suspects were transported to Industry Sheriff’s Station where Yeun and Tran are being held on $50, 000 bail. An is being held without bail.
