A department investigation led detectives to three marijuana growing operations -- at the Elk Grove home and two Sacramento residences, in the 7900 block of Stevenson Avenue and the 5200 block of Village Wood Drive.

The department's narcotics and special weapons teams confiscated two semiautomatic firearms, 681 marijuana plants and more than 10 pounds of processed marijuana.

Boson and Johnson are allegedly connected to all three residences, according to Officer Christopher Trim, spokesman for the Elk Grove Police Department. Trim said they were still determining if the suspects lived in one of the homes.
