TROUP COUNTY, GA. (WTVM) - A Troup County man faces charges, accused of operating a marijuana farm out of not one, but two houses.

Someone tipped off deputies on Friday and they searched the first home.

They say they found a room prepared to grow and cultivate marijuana.

Then, they learned that the owner had another house next door.

A total of 50 marijuana plants were found in the two houses along with harvested marijuana, cultivation equipment, and illegal drug paraphernalia.

Arrest warrants for the homeowner have been issued.
