RCMP have taken down a large marijuana grow operation in east Maple Ridge.
Mounties stumbled across the grow-op at a home on Ferguson Avenue on Monday while visiting the home on an unrelated matter.
They found nearly one thousand plants in various stages of growth, along with several guns.
A 42 year old man and his 35 year old wife were arrested.
They've been released from custody and ordered to be back in court in February.
The Ministry of Children and Families have also been notified because the couple has two young children.
