Pot Bust In Placerita Canyon

pot gunIn a multiagency sweep narcotics officers from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriffs Department and other agencies, conducted a marijuana eradication sweep this morning.

The operation took place in the Placerita Canyon area near the Placerita Canyon Nature Center around 9:30 a.m.

As officials armed with machine guns moved in on the suspected grow area, two individuals were seen fleeing the area.  They quickly set up a containment, but the suspects were not located.

“The plants that were found were very, very young,” said Lt. Brenda Cambra, spokeswoman for the Sheriffs department.

Operations are still being conducted in the area and information is limited at this time.  Check hometownstation.com for updates on the situation.
