‚ÄčA Duluth, Minnesota woman and her son were arrested Tuesday afternoon after a marijuana-growing operation that police called “sophisticated” was discovered in their home.

About 150 cannabis plants and a hydroponic growing operation were discovered, according to Duluth police information coordinator Brad Wick, reports Lisa Baumann at the Duluth News Tribune.
Officers from the Lake Superior Drug and Gang Task Force, Duluth Police Department and the U.S. Marshal’s Service served a search warrant at a house on Warren Avenue in the Kenwood neighborhood just after 2 p.m. 
A 65-year-old woman and her 35-year-old son were arrested at the home and taken to the St. Louis County Jail on suspicion of a first-degree “controlled substance” crime.
According to the News Tribune, a second search was conducted at another address in the Twin Cities area after additional investigation.

Another, possibly related, grow operation was discovered in St. Paul by the East Metro Narcotics Task Force. The investigation is continuing.
