Rudy Rivera and Joseph Ramirez, the two man charged in raids on four marijuana grow houses ran a sophisticated operation.
More than 200 plants and 60 pounds of marijuana were seized.
The first raid took place on Thursday in the 10000 block of Tawny Buck Court.
The second and third raids took place on Friday, within minutes of each other, at homes located on Wards Ferry Street and on Lily Haven Avenue.
The fourth and final raid took place Tuesday at a home on Mossy Bark Court.
It is estimated that the combined value or plants and marijuana had a value of almost $6 million dollars.
Marijuana grow houses, both large and small, pose a very real hazard to the community.
In addition to the abundance of chemicals used, home modifications are often made.
Since the grow houses use enormous energy, for example, the operators want to avoid detection from the power companies and will often tap directly into utility lines, which could result in overloaded power lines.
Oftentimes, wires can be seen protruding from grow houses which can harm children and pets who are often curious and might pick up a live wire.
Police teams outfitted in protective gear spent hours at each location.
Rivera and Ramirez were arrested for possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to sell and and trafficking of marijuana.
Ramirez was also charged with possession of a firearm.
