Authorities seized more than 2,000 marijuana plants from a warehouse raid in Rancho Dominguez yesterday.

Los Angeles County Sheriff's detectives from the Special Enforcement Bureau estimated the plants to be worth $10 million, and the indoor growing operation was able to produce $30 million worth of pot each year.

Five suspects in the operation were arrested after authorities served a search warrant at the 30,000-sqaure-foot facility in the 18700 block of South Susana Road.
