Two men accused of operating a grow house in Okeechobee County are under arrest, according to the sheriff's office.

After executing a search warrant Thursday afternoon at a home in the 500 block of NE 342nd Trail, detectives and the Okeechobee County Narcotics Task Force said they found a greenhouse in the woods with 189 marijuana plants inside. 

Investigators said the plants, which were in individual buckets and planters, weighed 304 pounds.

Inside the home they said there were 21 vacuumed-sealed bags of marijuana ready for sale.

Detectives arrested Samuel Adain, 35, of Fort Myers and 59-year-old Luis Yero of Miami.

They both face several charges including cultivation of cannabis and possession of marijuana with intent to sell.
