More than 1500 marijuana plants were destroyed during a series of raids by Shasta County drug agents Tuesday.

The sheriff’s marijuana investigative team served the first search warrant at a rural piece of property off of Ponderosa Way near Whitmore.

Authorities found and destroyed 1,157 plants and cited four people for various health and safety violations. Charges are expected to be filed by the district attorney’s office.

Three other raids in rural Shasta County netted approximately 500 marijuana plants, however no growers were found at the sites.
