Police were at the scene near Joy Road and Schaefer Highway because of an illegal car crushing operation at a used car lot. They smelled marijuana coming from an adjoining building on the property and executed a search warrant, according to authorities.
A saw had to be used to cut through the lock on the main door from the exterior. From there, police pried open two additional doors on the inside.
In the second room, they uncovered three long lines of marijuana plants.
Officials said two people were taken into custody in connection with the car crushing and marijuana grow operations.
