An animal cruelty investigation in rural Valley Center led to the discovery of an indoor marijuana growing operation with $20,000 of equipment and pot worth $300,000, the San Diego County Sheriff's Department said.

Deputies were responding Tuesday to a call about a man beating a dog when they noticed more than 100 marijuana plants inside a home, the department said.

The home allegedly had the lighting, irrigation system and other equipment to grow marijuana.

Four people were taken into custody, department officials said.
