Walnut Creek, Calif. — A car crash and a routine traffic stop led the California Highway Patrol to seize more than 800 marijuana plants, worth an estimated $2 million on the street, during three raids in Vacaville, Walnut Creek and Martinez, the agency said Wednesday.

Four Bay Area men have been arrested and the investigation is continuing, the CHP said.
