(WOODLAND) – The California Department of Justice (DOJ) today lead a task force that eradicated 2,000 illegally cultivated marijuana plants worth $8 million from a garden in Yolo County.

“Agents kept criminal growers from a $8 million payday,” said Attorney General Bill Lockyer. “The Sacramento Valley has been blanketed with illegal marijuana. Our agents will keep pulling it up wherever they find it, whether in fields or subdivisions. I appreciate the hard work of these tenacious law enforcement agents.”

Led by the DOJ’s Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement (BNE), the Yolo Narcotic Enforcement Team (YONET) identified the garden through investigative intelligence and air surveillance. In addition to BNE, members of YONET include the Yolo county Sheriff’s Department, Yolo County District Attorney, Police Departments from the cities of Davis, Woodland, West Sacramento, and Winters, and the University of California Davis Police Department.

This year BNE task force agents have seized 3,884 pounds of marijuana worth $15,534,512 and 102,604 illegally grown plants worth $410,416,000. Additionally, BNE agents working with the Campaign to Eradicate Marijuana (CAMP) have eradicated 1.2 million illegally grown plants worth $4.9 billion.
