A month-long investigation into an indoor marijuana growing operation led to the arrest of two people and the discovery of 1,000 marijuana plants.
Anonymous tips led investigators to the warehouse in the 2200 block of Stathan Boulevard (map) in Oxnard. A search warrant was served Friday morning, leading to the arrest of a man and woman.
Brandyn Cowgill was booked on suspicion of cultivating marijuana, possession of marijuana for sales, and conspiracy. Julia Danilkevich was booked on suspicion of cultivating marijuana and conspiracy.
They are accused in a grow operation that used about $150,000 worth of hydroponic growing equipment inside the Oxnard warehouse. Investigators serving the search warrant also found ultraviolet lights, water pumps, air filters, plants and 20 pounds of dried marijuana estimated to be worth more than $3.5 million, according to Oxnard police.
Cowgill and Danilkevich were at the warehouse when the warrants were served.
They were booked into Ventura County Jail. Bond for both suspects was set at $250,000.
