A home on Acorn Street in Marshfield that was the site of a home invasion late Tuesday.

An armed home invasion in Marshfield Tuesday night left one person pistol whipped and resulted in the discovery of a large-scale marijuana-growing operation inside a rambling house in the South Shore community, authorities said.

Marshfield Police Captain Michael McDonough said officers were called to 105 Acorn St. around 11:30 p.m. after three men forced their way into the home, firing one shot from a handgun.

No one was hit by the gunfire. At least three people were inside the building, which town assessing records describe as a two-family home.

McDonough said police were previously unaware of a marijuana operation.

McDonough said that police using social media tracked down one of the three suspects and arrested him. Eddy ­Monteiro of Brockton was ­arraigned Wednesday in ­Plymouth District Court and held on $100,000 cash bail. He entered a plea of not guilty.

Monteiro, 20, faces charges including three counts of kidnapping, three counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and armed home invasion, McDonough said.
