    More than 150 marijuana plants were seized Tuesday morning when Broward Sheriff’s Office investigators raided a grow house in an Oakland Park duplex.

    The raided home is on the 4500 block of Northeast 16 Avenue.

    According to the BSO, the plants were as small as seedlings and up to five feet tall. The plants filled roughly five rooms of the house and each plant was being grown in individual garden pots.

    BSO said it arrested a woman that lived next door who detectives said was seen going into and out of the house multiple times over the past few weeks. Detectives also arrested a Cooper City man that was connected to the house.

    The BSO said both people who were arrested face charges of cultivation of marijuana, trafficking in marijuana, possession of marijuana, and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.
