Tips from concerned citizens led Sandy police to a major drug bust.
The Sandy SWAT team served a search warrant about 4 a.m. Wednesday at an undisclosed location in the Salt Lake Valley. Inside, they found an expensive growing system producing high-grade marijuana.
More than 130 plants described as "top of the line" marijuana were seized, said Sandy police Sgt. Victor Quezada. Each plant was capable of producing about a pound of marijuana with an estimated street value of $4,000. All of the plants seized had an estimated street value of $524,000, he said.
