Authorities raided two illegal marijuana grows Wednesday, seizing about 60 plants and 2 pounds of processed marijuana, said Jacqueline Kirby, El Paso County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman.

Deputies also seized three guns and about $2,500 in cash.

The Sheriff's Office worked with the Metro Vice, Narcotics and Intelligence Division to bust the grows. One was on Judge Orr Road and the other was on Vorenberg Road, Kirby said.

No arrests had been made Wednesday evening, but the investigation is ongoing, Kirby said.
