El Monte police found more than half a ton of marijuana at an illegal grow house, authorities said Tuesday.

Nearly 2,700 plants with an estimated street sale value of more than $1 million were found when officers went to the 2600 block of Strozier Avenue about 4:30 p.m. Monday on a report of a landlord-tenant dispute, according to the El Monte Police Department.

Two people were detained for questioning, and the investigation was continuing, police said.

“These unregulated illegal marijuana grows are a hazard to our community,” El Monte police Chief David Reynoso said. “Our police department has zero tolerance for this type of illegal activity.”

Anyone with information on the case was urged to call El Monte police at (626) 580-2100. Tips may also be submitted via email at [email protected]
