Los Angeles County Sheriff's detectives seized more than 2,000 marijuana plants valued at $10 million from an indoor warehouse grow operation.

Narcotics Bureau detectives acted on information about the warehouse in Rancho Dominguez, and discovered the marijuana at about 4 p.m. Thursday. Members of the LASD Special Enforcement Bureau served a search warrant at the warehouse in the 18700 block of S. Susana Road in Rancho Dominguez.

Once inside, detectives discovered a large sophisticated indoor marijuana grow operation in a 30,000-square-foot warehouse in south Los Angeles County.

The marijuana plants were in various stages of growth. The grow operation had the capability of producing approximately $30 million in marijuana per year.

Five male adult suspects were arrested, according to a sheriff's release.

How long has this operation been going? Hopefully a big dent in the drug trade out there.

so sad to watch people destroy something benign because they can't make money off of it.

Taking down medical marijuana grows like this means cartels take it's place and money doesn't go into the economy

Drug Lords like these have enough money to buy anything, and will
use the hidden savings to lie their way out of any punishment. Waste of time.
