Authorities discovered a massive marijuana grow of more than 2,700 plants Wednesday in the San Bernardino Mountains.

The 4-foot to 6-foot-tall mature marijuana plants were growing below Panorama Point off state Highway 18 in Crestline, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.

No one has been arrested in connection with the grow.

Along with the 2,740 plants, drug investigators and officials with the U.S. Forest Service found trash, irrigation lines to water the plants and a camp set up for those who were taking care of them.


Sheriff’s officials also seized 600 marijuana plants at a home and detached garage in Lake Los Angeles on Wednesday.

Authorities arrested two men in connection with the grow.
