HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Another arrest has been made in connection with two elaborate marijuana grow houses discovered in Harrison County.

Harrison County Sheriff Melvin Brisolara told WLOX News that 25-year-old Dung Anh Tran was arrested Tuesday.

The first suspect arrested, Tin Quac Tran, 25, turned himself into authorities shortly after the bust on October 18.

Officials said the two suspects are not related.

Sheriff's deputies discovered the sophisticated marijuana manufacturing operation at two houses on Highway 15 in Coventry Estates.

Those involved in the intricate operation transformed every room in the houses except the foyers into green houses for pot. Hundreds of plants and several pounds of dry, ready to sell marijuana were confiscated.

Tran is being held on a $200,000 bond for cultivation of marijuana and possession with intent to distribute marijuana, which are both felonies.

Harrison County Sheriff's Captain Troy Peterson wouldn't comment on the arrest. However, he said more arrests are expected.
