Two arrested in connection with Elk Grove marijuana grow

Elk Grove police have arrested two men in connection with an illegal marijuana grow discovered in a house in the 9000 block of Old Creek Drive, a police spokesman said.

At about 10 a.m. Thursday, Elk Grove police officers searched the house and found about 200 marijuana plants, processed marijuana and back rooms constructed with lighting and equipment to facilitate growing, said Elk Grove police spokesman Officer Chris Trim.

Detectives had "developed information through investigative efforts that marijuana growing was taking place at this location," Trim said.

Joe Luu, 30, bottom left, and his brother Wilson Luu, 21, bottom right, were arrested and booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail on suspicion of possession and cultivation of marijuana, Elk Grove police reported.
