Complaints from neighbors led to the arrest of three men and the interruption of a grow house operation, according to the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office.

Following a three-month investigation the sheriff's office says it confiscated 92 pounds of marijuana worth $275,000 and closed down the alleged grow house at 6706 Ocala Avenue in Fort Pierce.

"We served three search warrants in St. Lucie County, and with the participation of the Indian River County Sheriff's Office, we served a fourth search warrant at a home in Indian River County," St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken Mascara said in a statement.

Investigators also seized a 2005 Ford F-150 pickup truck, a 2008 Ford F-150 pickup truck, a 2011 Nissan Titan pickup truck and $21,000 cash.

Detectives arrested Wildo Dumont, 43, of 7605 Ocala Ave., his son, Daikel Dumont-Rodriguez, 26, of 2474 First Place S.W., Vero Beach; and in-law Orley Recio, 43.  

All three were booked into the St. Lucie County Jail.
