Two suspects have been arrested in connection with an illegal marijuana cultivation operation in the San Gabriel Valley after authorities seized two caches of plants and dried marijuana with an estimated street value of $2.5 million, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said Friday.

Joseph Hsu, 30, a suspected member of the Chinese street gang known as Wah Ching, was arrested Thursday on narcotics and weapons charges by deputies from the Asian Gang Team in the sheriff’s Operation Safe Streets Bureau.

Pauline McDonnell, 22, of Redlands also was arrested on narcotics charges at Hsu’s rented condominium on Huntington Drive in San Gabriel.

After a monthlong investigation spurred by a tip, deputies discovered two indoor marijuana growing operations at Hsu’s home and in a commercial building fronting as a consultant’s office on South Date Avenue in Alhambra, authorities said.
