SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) - San Bernardino County deputies looking for two vicious pit bulls instead found nearly 2,000 marijuana plants, two suspects, three rifles and two shotguns.

A sheriff's statement Saturday says deputies in Adelanto received complaints from employees at a business saying they'd been attacked by two pit bulls, and traced the dogs to a nearby warehouse on Friday.

The deputies found no it bulls but a huge pot operation, and after a search warrant was obtained a narcotics team seized 1,850 marijuana plants growing in cargo containers, along with about 10 pounds of processed marijuana and the firearms.

The statement says 57-year-old David Lusk and 35-year-old Steven Hall were arrested. They'd been living makeshift bedrooms in the 20,000-square-foot building.

They were booked into Adelanto detention center about a block from their warehouse.
