WALKER, Minn. (KNSI) Cass County Sheriff Tom Burch says two men have been arrested after a marijuana growing operation was uncovered near Leader, Minnesota. 

A search warrant was obtained and that led to the discovery of more than 100 marijuana plants growing at a residence in Meadow Brook Township.

Also seized were several items used to support the growing operation, including lights and fertilizers. Methamphetamine and a firearm were also seized. 

Fifty seven year-old George Morcomb (pictured) was arrested at the residence. Investigators say a second man--42 year-old Larry Berg--was also arrested and faces charges.
