Thousands of pot plants ripped out of park

By
August 16, 2014 |

NEWPORT BEACH — Authorities on Friday removed thousands of marijuana plants found growing in an Orange County wilderness park not far from a high school and a tract of pricey homes.

Investigators were sent to pull up between 2,500 and 4,000 plants spotted several weeks ago in the Muddy Canyon area of the Laguna Coast Wilderness Park, county sheriff’s Lt. Jeff Hallock told the Orange County Register.

A helicopter hauled away the plants, which had an estimated street value of about $5 million, from the area just outside the city limits of wealthy Newport Beach.

The pot farm operators haven’t been found, and the plants will be held as evidence.

The plants were in a rugged area of the park, which includes scenic views and rugged coastal canyons of scrub, willow, oak and sycamore.
