5,000 Pounds of Marijuana Plants Found in Topanga State Park
A marijuana cultivation site in a Los Angeles area state park was raided by law enforcement Friday, yielding some 5,000 pounds of the plant, according to California State Parks. The news comes on the heels of 12 pot farm raids in Los Padres National Forest to the north.
"The pot farm was divided into seven separate plots, each hidden in the chaparral forest, and the damage to the ecosystem was significant," stated a news release, which added that officers worked to reverse environmental damage by the farm in Topanga State Park. Over 500 pounds of equipment, camping gear, and trash were also removed.
Clues indicated recent activity at the site before the raid, but no suspects were found. Law enforcement continue to investigate.
The Public Media Group of Southern California honored with a total of nine Golden Mike awards, the most of any station in the region.
