DEA agents raid multiple marijuana grow sites in Antelope Valley; thousands of plants seized
The Drug Enforcement Administration raided seven marijuana grow locations throughout the Antelope Valley on Friday in a multi-agency operation with local authorities.
Agents rounded up 400 pounds of processed pot, 8,962 marijuana plants, three grams of suspected meth and six guns. Eleven suspects were also taken into custody.
The operation is part of the DEA’s Domestic Cannabis Eradication/Suppression Program, or DCE/SP, which runs such busts side-by-side with state and local law enforcement agencies. Friday’s operation involved the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the California National Guard and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.
