The Siskiyou County Sheriff's Office Marijuana Eradication Team raided six large marijuana grows in western Siskiyou County last week, seizing over 100,000 plants valued at over $300 million, according to Sheriff John Lopey.

The sheriff's office worked in conjunction with the U.S. Forest Service, the California Department of Fish and Game and the Jackson County Sheriff's Office in Oregon to eradicate the grows.

There have been no arrests made in the cases, but authorities found several unoccupied tents.

This time of year is the height of harvest time for outdoor marijuana grows. Anyone who sees suspicious agricultural activity in remote areas should contact their local sheriff's office and stay away from the possible grow sites.
