Police seize 3,000 pot plants from 14 homes in illegal marijuana grow operations


More than 3,000 pot plants, 60 pounds of processed marijuana, firearms and vehicles were seized Tuesday morning in Renton, Seattle and Federal Way.

Police served search warrants at 14 illegal grow houses and arrested 15 people in connection to the grow operations.

Investigators said the operations are believed to be linked but do not believe any of the houses are tied to the state’s legal marijuana growing industry.

Detectives will continue their investigation and the 15 suspects will be booked into the King County Jail for charges related to drug manufacturing.
