Oakland Commemorates 4/20 with a Major Drug Bust

Holy fuck. The OPD apparently seized a truly staggering amount of weed in an accidental drug bust early this morning. Per Harry Harris at the Trib:

They didn’t get the burglar but police responding to a reported break-in Wednesday morning at an East Oakland building made a bigger find: a sophisticated indoor marijuana-growing operation of 2,300 plants with an estimated street value of more than $2 million.

It is one of the largest seizures of marijuana by police in recent memory.

The cops are still looking into who owns the growhouse, which is on the 5800 block of Foothill.

HAPPY 4/20, Y’ALL!!!
