IMPERIAL BEACH (CNS) - Sheriff's deputies in Imperial Beach arrested 15 people in a warrant sweep, including a 50-year-old man found with about $35,000 worth of pot growing at his home, sheriff's deputies said Saturday.

Deputies started tracking down people named in warrants about 5 a.m., eventually making 15 arrests, sheriff's spokeswoman Melissa Aquino said.

Gordon James of Coronado was arrested on a probation violation owing to a drunken driving arrest, and deputies found 22 pot plants growing on his back porch, Aquino said.

Coronado police seized the plants and found more growing in the garage, Aquino said. James is expected to be arraigned Monday.
