GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Deputies said two Florida men are accused of growing more than $350,000 worth of marijuana in Greenville.

Greenville County deputies said they issued arrest warrants for 47-year old Lorgio Danilo Morales and 23-year old Camilo Rodriguez-Gonzalez both of Miami on Wednesday.

The warrants are for manufacturing marijuana (greater than 100 plants but fewer than 1,000 plants) and trafficking in marijuana (100 pounds or more, but fewer than 2,000 pounds).

On April 23, deputies discovered the illegal grow operation at 208 Piedmont Highway after receiving a call about the theft of electricity.

The investigation led to the seizure of 687 marijuana plants, more than 100 pounds of processed and packaged plants, chemicals and equipment that deputies said was worth $350,000 on the street.
