Authorities bust $36.9 million illegal cannabis warehouse in Oakland

SF Gate reports

Law enforcement busted a massive illegal cannabis grow in Oakland last week, finding an estimated $36.9 million worth of cannabis in an unlicensed facility.

In total, an operation led by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife found 41,082 cannabis plants and 1,841 pounds of processed cannabis, according to Janice Mackey, a spokesperson for the agency.

“This is one of the largest cannabis enforcement actions (in terms of retail value) in the Bay Area this year,” Mackey wrote in an email to SFGATE.

The operation occurred on Sept. 28 at the 300 block of Adeline Street near Interstate 880. Officers also seized three firearms at the scene. No one was arrested, according to Mackey. She declined to provide a specific address where the operation took place.
