The house is located off Sapona Ridge Country Club on Indian Wells Circle.

On Monday, investigators discovered 17 trash bags full of marijuana worth an estimated $828,000.

Investigators said the renters not only were growing marijuana but also stealing electricity.

That, in turn, caused a transmitter to blow which started a small fire in the woods. Investigators then also received a tip about the operation.

Two men were detained including Hong Nguyen and Haih Nguyen.
