    Two men suspected of operating a multi-million dollar marijuana grow operation inside a warehouse in South San Francisco were arrested Friday by police.

    Detectives discovered the indoor farm of more than 10,000 pot plants while investigating some suspicious activity in the 400 block of Cabot Road, police said.

    Two men, 51-year-old Chris Cameron of San Francisco and 59-year-old Robert Cummings of Oakland, were arrested on suspicion of being the operation's "primary cultivators," police said.

    Agents from the San Mateo County Narcotics Task Force were called in to take over the investigation and, along with South San Francisco police officers, dismantle the farm.
