Deputies in Mariposa County say $150,000 worth of pot is now off the streets. Federal and local agents served two search warrants this week one on Bear Valley Road and another on Tip Top Road.

Officers also confiscated a freightliner tractor trailer and several other vehicles. The investigation is ongoing and no arrests have been made.
