Tulare County authorities make major pot busts

FRESNO, Calif.

In the past two weeks officers raided 11 marijuana gardens. They were all found on private and public lands throughout Tulare County.

Four people were also arrested at various grow sites.

In some cases, the sites were quite sophisticated, with tree branches made into a fence to store the marijuana plants.

More than 106 thousand live plants were seized during the operation.

Investigators also found what appears to be a sleeping area for growers along with several firearms, pesticides, and rat poison.
