INDUSTRY, Calif. (AP) - Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies have seized more than 16,000 marijuana plants that were being grown in two warehouses.

A Sheriff’s Department statement says a two-month investigation resulted in a search warrant being served Thursday in the city of Industry at locations of a sophisticated marijuana grow operation.

The department says the marijuana has a street value of more than $50 million.

Eight men were arrested. They were identified only as residents of San Gabriel and Rowland Heights.

The investigation is continuing.
