Some 800 marijuana plants were seized from inside a home in this upscale San Gabriel Valley community and two men were arrested Tuesday, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said.

Sheriff's Capt. Richard Shaw said detectives went to the home, on a 12-acre parcel in the 1900 block of Royal Oaks Drive, about 10 a.m. and arrested two of its occupants after finding the plants.

Charles Smith, 42, and Laurence Poor, 47, were arrested on suspicion of cultivation of marijuana, Shaw said.

Shaw said he could not estimate the street value of the crop but said that about 300 of the plants were nearly mature.
