PARSIPPANY, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say two New Jersey men have been charged with drug offenses after police seized more than 50 marijuana plants and narcotics manufacturing equipment from a house in Parsippany.

Morris County Prosecutor Fredric M. Knapp and Parsippany Police Chief Paul Philipps say police learned of the grow house in April and made the arrests on Tuesday.

Fifty-eight-year-old Barton Harris and 40-year-old Matthew Greist, both of Morris Plains, each are being held at the Morris County Correctional Facility in lieu of $200,000 bail. They face charges including possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute and maintaining or operating a controlled dangerous substance facility. It wasn’t immediately known if they’re represented by lawyers.

Knapp commended the efforts of the Parsippany police and the county Narcotics Task Force.
