Drug agents from the Butte County Sheriff's Office Special Enforcement Unit served search warrants on three separate properties Thursday where they found more than 300 pounds of processed marijuana.

The properties involved were in on Black Tail Road in Forbestown, Milsap Bar Road in Berry Creek and on Zepher Way in Oroville. All three locations were allegedly connected.

Officers found growing pot plants, both outdoor and indoor, and hundreds of pounds of processed marijuana in sealed bags, and nearly 15 thousand dollars in cash.

A total of six people were arrested, including suspects from Fresno and out of state.
