OXNARD, Calif. (KABC) -- Two people were arrested after police discovered a $3.5 million marijuana-growing operation in Oxnard Thursday.
After a month-long investigation, police served a search warrant at a warehouse in the 2200 block of Statham Boulevard around 10 a.m.
During the search, detectives found over 1,000 pot plants and 20 pounds of dried marijuana, worth an estimated $3.5 million. Numerous ultraviolet lights, water pumps, air filters and growing materials were also found.

Cowgill was booked on a third charge of possession of marijuana for sales. Both are being held at the Ventura County Jail on $250,000 bail.
Anyone with information on this case was urged to call Det. James Langford at (805) 385-7638.
