Thousands Of Marijuana Plants Discovered In Muddy Canyon

Posted: Updated:

 LAGUNA BEACH (CNS) - Orange County sheriff's investigators hiked up into the Muddy Canyon area of Laguna Wilderness Park today to yank out thousands of marijuana plants.

The investigators started the removal of an estimated 2,500 to 4,000 marijuana plants at 7 a.m. and expected the operation to take up to six hours,

Orange County sheriff's Lt. Jeff Hallock said. The area is remote enough that the investigators had to hike there and personally pull the plants, Hallock said. They will get help from a sheriff's helicopter crew, which will lift the plants and move them to a staging area at Coastal Peak Park, where the vegetation will be bagged as evidence, Hallock said.

The plants are in an area south of the San Joaquin Hills (73) toll road, east of Newport Coast Drive near East Coastal Peak and Ridge Park roads.
