Five men have been arrested on suspicion of operating a large indoor marijuana farm in Rancho Dominguez, containing plants valued at more than $10 million, officials said.

The discovery Thursday of the 30,000-square-foot warehouse in the 18700 block of South Susana Road was the result of a tip, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department officials said.

The operation contained more than 2,000 marijuana plants, according to the department. The names of the five arrested had not been released.
