An indoor marijuana growing operation was found inside an El Monte home on Monday, police reported.

Guan Jiao Liao, 58, of El Monte was arrested this afternoon at the home at 4322 Huddart Ave., said Lt. C. Williams.

The residence had been entirely converted for growing a “large crop of over 500 marijuana plants with hydroponics equipment and artificial lighting,” Williams said.

“The home’s electrical meter had been bypassed and created a fire hazard,” he added.
