$4 Million In Pot Seized In San Gabriel Valley
Authorities in the San Gabriel Valley this week seized $4 million in pot and arrested seven people in raids at four "locations" in the city of San Gabriel, Rosemead and Temple City, sheriff's officials said.
Three of the locations were homes where "major marijuana cultivation operation[s]" were found, according to a statement. About 1,600 plants were seized as part of the search-warrant busts by the sheriff's Operation Safe Streets Bureau.
"The cultivation of marijuana is a scourge in our communities and we will continue to enforce the law to prevent these drugs from hurting our children and families," Lt. Douglas Fetterol stated.
Minh Luu, 49, of San Gabriel, was described as a main suspect, according to Fetterol.
