TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Two people were arrested after authorities shut down a marijuana growing operation on Tucson's northeast side.

The Pima County Sheriff's Department Fugitive Investigative Strike Team served felony warrants on Jan. 28 for two suspects in a gated community in the 12600 block of E. Horsehead Road, where they reportedly saw an extensive marijuana grow, according to a news release.

Authorities obtained a search warrant and seized 117 marijuana plants and bags of harvested marijuana. Those items, along with several guns, two vehicles and U.S. currency were seized.

Officials arrested 24-year-old Jennifer Parcelluzzi and 26-year-old Zachary Morales, charged with child abuse for allegedly exposing their two-week-old child to the drugs in the house.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is urged to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
