40,000 illegal marijuana plants found in Southern California


RIVERSIDE, Calif. Authorities say they seized 40,000 marijuana plants at an illegal pot farm east of Los Angeles. The Riverside Police Department says a tip regarding the strong odor of marijuana coming from a home sent them to a house that turned out to have a private nursery about the size of a city block. Detectives armed with a search warrant entered the property on Thursday. Authorities say they found enough plants to make about 10 tons of pot with an estimated street value of $20 million.
