NJ's largest pot growing ring taken down

State Attorney General Paula Dow announced Wednesday the seizure of more than $10 million worth of marijuana and arrests of two men and a woman involved in a sophisticated growing operation.

Officials say 10 warrants were served by multiple police agencies in three counties.

Authorities seized 3,370 growing plants, 115 pounds of harvested marijuana, $65,000 in cash and numerous pieces of cultivation equipment.

The investigation began in February when officers made an arrest in Monroe in connection with what prosecutors say is the largest marijuana growing ring in the state. Local, state and federal agencies then worked in collaboration to uncover the remaining locations in Millstone, Old Bridge, Manahawkin and Manalapan.

The other two suspects were arrested in Millstone.
