Southern California police seized 35,000 marijuana plants from a weed “fortress” and shut down an operation they believed was bringing in millions of dollars a month.
San Bernardino Police said they detained eight people Wednesday when police and federal agents raided a warehouse that was converted into a multi-level grow house. They said the once-abandoned warehouse was recently outfitted with a 12-foot fence, “fortified doors” and surveillance cameras.
Investigators also raided three properties all owned by Stephanie Smith, 43, of Pacific Palisades, and found marijuana plants in each residence.
Smith was being investigated but she was not arrested or charged with a crime, police said. The eight people detained at the warehouse were also not charged. – READ MORE[contentcards url=”http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/12/16/california-weed-fortress-had-35000-marijuana-plants-inside-cops-say.html” target=”_blank”]
