The Orange County Sheriff's Office said a National Guard helicopter unit helped drug investigators find and uproot 1,197 plants from several locations in the county Thursday afternoon. Sheriff Lindy Pendergrass said the plants were valued at more than $1 million.
The plants seized, if grown to maturity, could have had a street value of approximately $120,000, the sheriff's office said.
Investigations are continuing in both counties. Neither set of raids brought arrests.
