BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) - Kern County officials say they've seized more than $100 million worth of marijuana in raids this month.
Sheriff's deputies report they seized nearly 25,000 immature plants in the Twin Oaks area on May 1 and arrested four people on suspicion of drug, conspiracy and firearms crimes.
A joint local and federal task force seized more than 13,000 immature plants in the eastern mountains on May 8, and on Thursday, more than 4,000 plants were seized in the Alta Sierra mountain range.
Authorities estimate the pot's street value at more than $100 million.
