CAPE CORAL, Fla.- Two men were arrested after police officers discovered a grow house used to cultivate marijuana.

36-year-old Juan Lopez and 46-year-old Sean Merrigan were arrested as they were leaving the residence located in the 2000 block of NW 3rd Terrace.

Officials say the house contained the tools and chemicals used to run a marijuana operation worth nearly $100,000.

According to authorities, the house had multiple marijuana cultivation rooms, some of which had already been harvested.

The combined weight of all the marijuana that was found within the residence was over 100 pounds.

Both men have posted bail and will be in court next month.
