$146 million in cannabis plants seized in bust spanning several California counties

A cross-county search in California involving five warrants and numerous law enforcement agencies has bagged US$120 million ($146 million) worth of illegal cannabis.

While cannabis and hemp cultivation can be legal depending on the local ordinances, according to the Solano County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO), “it is a crime when it is not done in compliance with the law.

In California, people 21 and older can legally grow up to six cannabis plants for recreational use. Outdoor grows are off-limits, unless specified by local authority.

The recent discovery of the illegal grow was the fruit of an investigation that kicked off last November and led police to Elk Grove in Siskiyou County, the SCSO reports. Involving law enforcement in both Siskiyou and Solano counties, the five search warrants were recently executed in Siskiyou County.

Those warrants revealed 14 weapons and US$312,000 ($380,640) in illicit money. /

Those warrants resulted in the seizure of 14 weapons, the seizure/destruction of 79,000 illegal marijuana plants — these having a street value of US$120 million ($146 million) — the confiscation of 179 pounds (81.2 kilograms) of processed cannabis and the seizure of US$312,000 ($380,640) in illicit money.

One person has been arrested in connection with the investigation.
