A RAID on a Sydney home uncovered cannabis plants worth more than $2.5 million.

Police today said officers involved in a covert operation on the property at Rock Street, Yagoona, raided the house about 6pm (AEDT) yesterday.

The officers found the house had been converted into a number of cannabis growing rooms with sophisticated lighting, electrical and ventilation equipment.

They located more than 500 canabis plants and a large amount of processed leaf and stems.

One man was arrested allegedly running from the premises and a second was found hiding amongst the plants.

A 36-year-old man and a 23-year-old man were both charged with cultivating a commercial quantity of prohibited plant and refused bail.

They will appear at Burwood Local Court later today.
