More than 1,000 cannabis plants were found Thursday inside what detectives say was an illegal marijuana grow facility in Warner Springs.
On top of the 1,191 plants seized from the illegal operation, more than $1 million worth of processed marijuana was also found, San Diego County Sheriff's Department Sgt. Mark Knierim said.
Two men, ages 48 and 63, who were at the scene when detectives arrived were arrested. Their identities were not disclosed but Knierim said they face felony charges to be filed with the San Diego County District Attorney's Office.
SDSO Narcotics detectives raided the facility, located off a remote road off state Route 79 north of Warner Springs and east of Palomar Mountain, at about 8 a.m.
Detectives believed the seized marijuana was used to facilitate supply to illegal dispensaries across Southern California. The raid on the Warner Springs location was part of a larger investigation into illegal marijuana operations in San Diego County.
