INVER GROVE HEIGHTS, Minn. (AP) — Dakota County drug investigators say they've found nearly 400 pounds of marijuana hidden in an Inver Grove Heights house.

A St. Paul Pioneer Press report (http://bit.ly/uZmCA8 ) says the stash is worth an estimated $1.3 million.

Three people were charged Friday with two counts each of felony first-degree drug possession. A fourth person is wanted on the same charges.

Investigators say they received an anonymous tip and searched the home Nov. 4, finding 14 pounds of drugs. They say they got another call a few weeks later saying they missed a secret, much larger stash.

They got another warrant and searched again this week. They say this time they found a false wall hiding a secret room, in which 377 pounds of marijuana were being stored in dozens of large bins.
