Portland: pot bust yields marijuana worth $1M



PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Portland police have seized more than 1,000 marijuana plants valued at more than $1 million and arrested five people.

The Oregonian reports (http://is.gd/SHpzYD) that the five search warrants served Thursday throughout the metropolitan area capped an 18-month probe of a drug trafficking organization.

Sgt. Pete Simpson says the marijuana was grown in several houses and distributed throughout the region. He says the operation had no connection to medical marijuana.
