After a tip off from a member of the public, officers searched the house in the Old Glenarm Road area.
During the raid on Tuesday evening, they found 78 cannabis plants, which the police have described as a "significant seizure".
Larne Inspector Noel Rogan said "irresponsible" landlords could face prosecution if they allow cannabis factories in their properties.
"Neighbours are asked to report strange activities such as windows boarded up, curtains closed all the time, a lot of comings and goings to the property and any other peculiar signs as cannabis in particular gives off quite a pungent aroma"
"This is a significant seizure of illegal substances taken from the streets of Larne, and is an excellent example of the local community working in tandem with police.
"Officers will continue to provide a safe environment to live and work, and we thank the co-operation of the people of Larne for their support," he added.
