WARWICK -

Two men were arrested after a marijuana grow house was uncovered inside a rental home on Horizon Farms Drive in Warwick, officials say.

Authorities say neighbors had a bad feeling about the new tenants who moved in, and on Sunday called police to report suspicious activity.

By Monday, police arrested two people outside of the house, with boxes allegedly full of marijuana plants.

Police say the men - John DeJesus and Christian Toledo -  are both from the Bronx and came to Warwick to set up the 'sophisticated' marijuana grow house. They say there were 275 pot plants, worth nearly $400,000, found inside.

The suspects are being held on $15,000 bail.
