Ceres Police say three search warrants Thursday led them to 193 marijuana plants they say have a street value of nearly $9 million.
Neighbors of a home on Don Pedro Road had reported a marijuana plant that had grown to be 12 feet, well above the fence line.
An investigation led to the Ceres Street Crimes Unit getting search warrants for three homes.
According to a news release from the Ceres Police Department, investigators were “amazed” to see so many tall marijuana plants. The home on Don Pedro Road had 78 plants that had grown above 12 feet high.
Another home, on El Camino Avenue, had plants that had grown to three feet high.
The total street value of the plants seized was placed at $8.79 million.
