Five people have been arrested in connection to a suspected marijuana grow house that caught fire Saturday.
The owner of the home, 43-year-old Felix Su, is suspected to be responsible for the marijuana growing operation found at the Laguna Villa Way home.
Using a search warrant, detectives looked into two other Elk Grove homes (one on the 6800 block of Kilconnell Drive and another on the 7500 block of Shelby Street) and found marijuana grows in each.
Authorities say that between the three homes, over 550 marijuana plants and 6 pounds a packaged marijuana were found – along with over $1,500 in cash and a loaded 12-gauge sawed off shotgun.
Su, 41-year-old Kim Ta (Su’s wife), 47-year-old Mui Ly, 54-year-old Duong Su, and 24-year-old Raymond Su were arrested for cultivation of marijuana and possession of marijuana for sale charges. Raymond sue also faces a charge for possession of the sawed-off shotgun.
Detectives are still investigating the incident. The exact cause of the fire at home on Saturday is still under investigation.
