LOS PADRES, Calif. — Authorities seized more than 68,000 marijuana plants with an estimated street value of $306 million during two eradication operations this week in the Los Padres National Forest, the U.S. Forest Service announced Wednesday.
The marijuana farms were discovered during aerial reconnaissance missions by the Ventura and Kern County sheriff's departments, said Kathy Good, a Forest Service spokeswoman. The discoveries were not connected to recent fires in the Los Padres forest.
