Cops acting on a tip discovered $4 million worth of marijuana in a Diamond Bar house, sheriff's officials said today.

In a statement deputies called the operation "an elaborate marijuana grow system" that included the alleged theft of more than $100,000 worth of electricity, ostensibly for grow lights, irrigation systems and and cooling fans, from Southern California Edison.

The bust was made ...

... Monday after 5 p.m. in the 24000 block of High Crest Drive, according to the sheriff's statement.

Deputies set up at the home and detained two suspects as they left the house, according to the sheriff's department.
