Glenn County authorities say they removed more than 500 pounds of marijuana from an illegal growing operation in the Mendocino National Forest.

The Glenn County Interagency Narcotics Task Force said Monday that drug agents along with U.S. Forest Service officials raided an illegal grow Friday and arrested two men.

Jose Herrera Ortiz, 29, of Michoacan, Mexico and Fernando Herrera Esquivel, 24 of Bakersfield, were both arrested at the grow site and booked into the Glenn County Jail.

Officials say they found 352 marijuana plants, 43 pounds of processed marijuana and two loaded guns.
