MADISON, MS (Mississippi News Now) - Madison County authorities have confirmed that a second person has been taken into custody concerning a marijuana grow operation, which could be the county's biggest drug bust in  history.

Madison County Sheriff's Department spokesman Heath Hall confirmed that husband and wife, Henry and Beverly Monroe, are at the Madison County Detention Center and live at 405 Brentwood Dr., in Madison.  That address is where Madison County authorities seized more than 165 pot plants on Monday.

Sheriff Randy Tucker said the seized plants could easily produce 50-100 pounds of marijuana.

Hall said, the Monroes are scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday at 9 a.m., in Madison County court.
