PUEBLO WEST -

Deputies in Pueblo West find 56 plants in a home on Friday while serving a search warrant.

Deputies described the grow as elaborate saying the value of the plants is estimated at $93,000. The home is in the 300 block of E. Dee Jay Court.

(Pueblo County Sheriff's Office released pictures of "elaborate" marijuana grow operation in Pueblo West home.)

Detectives said a tip led them to the address where they said they found two grow rooms in the basement. One room contained 31 large marijuana plants. In the second room, they found evidence that the plants had been recently harvested and 25 harvested plants were found in trash bags in the basement.

In addition to the marijuana various grow equipment was seized. No arrests have been made.

Deputies said they anticipate serving additional warrants and arrests may follow. The home appeared to be vacant and was also the site of an illegal marijuana grow operation in May of 2016. At that time, the home was one of five that was raided by deputies. The busts produced an estimated $1.3 million in marijuana.

Seven suspects were arrested in relation to the grow operation. All seven had relocated to Colorado from Florida.
