Two people from Markham are facing charges after Durham police say they were growing a lot more marijuana than their license allowed.
Investigators from the Drug Enforcement Unit began an investigation into a property on Thorah Concession Road 2 near Beaverton.
Three licenses had been issued for plants to be grown indoors at the location but after getting a search warrant, officers found an outdoor grow-op much larger than the licenses allow.
Approximately 2,100 plants were seized, as well as more than 300 pounds of dried marijuana that were packaged for shipping.
Quan Chen, 31, and Zheng Zhu, 49, both of Markham, are charged with unauthorized production under the Cannabis Act.
