Butte County drug agents busted three pot grows while serving a series of search warrants in the Concow area Wednesday.

BINTF agents served search warrants at three parcels of land near Danville Circle in Concow.

Agents found Jose Bladimir Reyes-Membreno, 33, of El Salvador tending to nearly 800 marijuana plants spread over two separate pieces of land, and then found another 84 plants being grown by Ge Thao, of Sacramento. Both men were arrested on suspicion of marijuana cultivation.

Authorities say they found county code violations at all three locations including septic, building and structure violations, camping violations, well violations and Measure A violations.
