Authorities found almost 1,750 marijuana plants nestled between two homes in Marion County, Arkansas, Friday.

The plants were spotted from a helicopter during an eradication operation involving Marion County, the Drug Taskforce, Arkansas Game & Fish, Flippin Police Department, Arkansas State Police and the Arkansas National Guard.

Officers searched the houses, which turned out to be unoccupied, but in addition to the pot, some of which was already processed, they also discovered numerous weapons.

Arrest warrants are expected to be issued in coming days, according to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office.
