    Federal agents raided a downtown marijuana collective on Tuesday morning, breaking a glass door in order to get inside.

    Around 9:30 a.m. agents and sheriff's deputies were seen at 923 6th Ave. at One-on-One collective where officials were questioning people inside the building. The owner of the collective was also detained, but not arrested.

    Officials at the scene said the raid is part of a larger operation going on today. At least 10 warrants are being served throughout San Diego County -- with the majority of locations being North County indoor marijuana growers in Del Mar, Escondido and Oceanside.

    Roughly 1,000 plants have been seized so far during today's operation, according to the U.S. Department of Justice. The locations are businesses and homes.

    Narcotics Task Force officers carried boxes of evidence outside the collective.

    A handful of San Diego residents at the scene were seen protesting the raid.

    "I think they should leave the collectives alone and let them service people who need it," said medical marijuana advocate Connie Johnston.
