SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - The state attorney general's office says four men are in custody after authorities seized thousands of marijuana plants worth $2 million during a Sacramento County raid.

Agents on Tuesday arrested 34-year-old Anthony Uasiarez (ooh-ah-see-AR-ez) and 18-year-old Ruben Guzman, both from Mexico, as well as 22-year-old Jorge Vargas Garcia and 23-year-old Jose Estrada of Tulare County during the raid on a pot grow at the Stone Lakes preserve near Elk Grove.

Garcia and Estrada are suspected members of the Sureños (Soo-RAYN'-yos) gang.

Agents seized more than 7,000 pot plants, 100 pounds of marijuana, two shotguns and a handgun following an investigation of the men.

The men are in Sacramento County Jail on suspicion of possessing marijuana for sale, cultivation of marijuana, conspiracy and being armed in commission of a felony.
