The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department has released the details about its raids on over 100 properties in Anza this past week, with officials saying they confiscated nearly $190 million in weed that was then taken to the dump and buried.

In addition to the 140,000 pounds of weed, 27 firearms were taken, and eight people were arrested, according to the Desert Sun.

The raid followed numerous crimes in the area – including a homicide, theft, robbery and kidnapping – that were all tied to illegal marijuana grows.

In raids of marijuana grows elsewhere in the state of California in 2018, officials discovered that nine of every 10 farms raided contained traces of powerful and potentially lethal pesticides
