    Officials found nearly 900 pot plants growing inside greenhouses on a property in Fallbrook.

    Deputies discovered nearly 900 marijuana plants in a grow operation Thursday morning at a location in Fallbrook.

    According to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, a search warrant was served in the 2700-block of Joan Lane at around 7 a.m. There a total of 898 pot plans were found growing in six greenhouses.

    Officials said the plants had an estimated street value of $800,000 to $1 million.

    A loaded gun was also seized in the search. No arrested were made, and officials said the investigation is ongoing.

    The investigation into this North County location began last June after reports of suspicious activity on the property. Thursday’s takedown was executed by deputies with the Fallbrook Sheriff's Substation, Sheriff's Special Enforcement Detail (SED/SWAT) and the Narcotics Task Force (NTF).

    The plants were seized and will be destroyed, according to the sheriff’s department.
