DIAMOND BAR, Calif. — More than 2,000 marijuana plants were confiscated from a house in an upscale Diamond Bar neighborhood Wednesday in what officials described as the largest indoor pot-growing operation they've ever seen.

Deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Narcotics Unit served a search warrant about 3 p.m. at a two-story, 3,000-square-foot home at 1512 Eldertree Drive, which was "100 percent devoted to marijauna growing," said sheriff's narcotics Lt. James Whitten.
