Authorities destroy 1,622 pot plants across region
SPRINGVILLE — Authorities on Wednesday destroyed more than 1,000 marijuana plants being cultivated on California Bureau of Land Management lands.
The 1,622 plants, had they reached full maturity, would have been worth an estimated $6.48 million on the streets, the Tulare County Sheriff’s Department reports.
The eradication was carried out at about 4:30 p.m. in a joint effort by the Sheriff’s Department’s Tactical Enforcement Personnel assisted by the California Department of Justice Campaign Against Marijuana Planting team.
The plants were found in groves in the Springville area and above Three Rivers to the north.
