Pima County sheriff's deputies serving felony warrants on two suspects came across a marijuana growing operation at a Tucson home Tuesday.

A search warrant was obtained for the suspects and property in the 12,600 block of East Horsehead Road.

Detectives with the Fugitive Investigative Strike Team discovered 117 marijuana plants. Pima sheriff's deputies said they also uncovered numerous bags of harvested marijuana, several guns, two vehicles and U.S. currency.

Jennifer Parcelluzzi, 24, and Zachary Morales, 26, were arrested on the warrants and charged with child abuse. A 2-week-old child was exposed to the drugs within the house, deputies said. 

Additional charges are pending.
