LOS ANGELES — Federal prosecutors say three men have been arrested on charges they took part in a scheme to illegally grow marijuana in Southern California homes purchased with money from China. The U.S. attorney’s office said raids Thursday discovered more than 1,600 pot plants growing in seven homes in San Bernardino County. Prosecutors say one of the men charged was a real estate agent who purchased the homes with money wired from China that hid the owners’ identities.
