ELLICOTT, Colo. (KKTV) - Two people were detained and 233 pot plants seized during a drug bust Thursday morning.

Several neighbors said they saw heavy police activity on Jones Road near Ellicott Highway mid-morning. The El Paso County Sheriff's Office initially told 11 News they were executing a search warrant and later confirmed the drug seizure.

The initial plant count released by deputies was 175, but that number has since been corrected by the sheriff's office.

The two detained were identified Friday as Eredy Rosales and Daryl F. Caballero. They were served and released on a felony summons for the cultivation of marijuana, which is a drug felony three.

No mugshots were made available.
