Police reported two people, Michael Anthony Lozano, 23, and Kristina Lynn Pineda, 20, were arrested after detectives discovered a marijuana grow operation in their garage.

The Mohave County Sheriff's Office said their deputies along with the Mohave Area General Narcotics Enforcement Team detectives served the search warrant on Friday after they received a tip that there may be a marijuana grow house at the residence in the 1100 block of South Concho Road.

More than 500 marijuana plants were seized by MCSO along with various weapons.

Both Lozano and Pineda were arrested on produce marijuana, possession of marijuana for sale, possession of narcotic drug for sale, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a weapon during a drug offense. All of their charges are felonies.
