CLOQUET, Minn. (AP) — Police have uncovered a marijuana-growing operation and arrested two people in Cloquet.

Officers arrested a man and a woman Thursday night after a yearlong investigation. Police found two marijuana-cultivating rooms with a large number of marijuana plants.

The Duluth News Tribune reports officers also found a large amount of processed marijuana in the home and an adjacent building, and recovered 17 rifles and 12 pistols that were hidden.

The pair were taken to Carlton County Jail. Officers from the Cloquet and Fond du Lac police departments, St. Louis and Carlton county sheriff’s offices and the Minnesota State Patrol were involved in the arrests.
