CREATED Dec. 10, 2012

 Henderson, NV (KTNV) -- Two people were arrested Monday afternoon after the S.W.A.T team, local police, and federal drug enforcement agents, raided a marijuana grow house in Henderson.

The home is on Blackridge Road, near East Horizon Drive and U.S. Highway 95.

Police said a 21-year-old woman and a 22-year-old man were arrested, suspected of converting three rooms of the home into an advanced grow operation. The couple allegedly rented that home.

Investigators found about 70 plants, along with ready-to-sell marijuana, and a gun. They said the home is badly damaged.

A neighbor, concerned about unusual activity at the house, tipped off authorities.
