INDUSTRY, Calif. — Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies have seized more than 16,000 marijuana plants that were being grown in two warehouses.
A Sheriff’s Department statement says a two-month investigation resulted in a search warrant being served Thursday in the city of Industry at locations of a sophisticated marijuana grow operation.
The department says the marijuana has a street value of more than $50 million.
Eight men were arrested. They were identified only as residents of San Gabriel and Rowland Heights.
The investigation is continuing.
