Deputies in Hillsborough County say they've busted a major marijuana operation in Brandon.
Magaly Cuevas and Rodolfo Leantaud are under arrest for allegedly running it from inside a home at 804 Regent Circle North.
The sheriff's office says a concerned citizen alerted them to the operation, and when deputies searched the home, they found more than $600,000 in marijuana plants – 42 in all.
The total weight of the snatch was 160 pounds.
Deputies say the couple kept it in the garage, but they also apparently had a 13-year-old living with them.
That child has been handed over to family members.
The couple faces a number of drug trafficking charges, as well as child neglect.
