Party Foul in Ventura County, as Sheriff's Uproot $205M Worth of Marijuana
Ventura County Sheriff's investigators seized 68,488 marijuana plants at the largest plantation ever discovered in the area, reports KTLA. The plants were uprooted, and were estimated to be worth about $205 million. The growing area was located in the Los Padres National Forest, just north of Ojai. No one has been arrested, however several guns and rifles were also found on the property.
The operation was discovered last month. In addition to the existing plants, areas had been cleared for growing and water was being brought in by reservoirs dug to access natural springs, adds the San Jose Mercury News.
