The Fugitive Task Force arrested two teens after making the discovery of marijuana plants.

Lancaster County Sheriff's Captain Ben Houchin says the Fugitive Task Force went to 2433 E Street #5 Wednesday morning to serve two warrants.  Houchin says they noticed a bright light coming from one of the bedrooms.  Officers found an active marijuana grow operation.

A 14-year-old boy and 18-year-old Dakota Gaffney were arrested for manufacturing a controlled substance.  The 14-year-old was taken to the Juvenile Detention Center.  Gaffney was taken to the Lancaster County Jail.

Houchin says a woman who answered the door, the boy's mother, was not arrested.
