(LAKEVIEW, Ore.) - A total of 7,459 marijuana plants 2-4 feet in height were seized today in a multi agency operation in Lake County.

Twenty five officers from state, county, city and federal agencies teamed to raid the suspected outdoor marijuana grow site about 8 miles northwest of Lakeview.

Lt. Greg Hastings with Oregon State Police says the grow site was on private and national forest service property at a 5,000 foot location described as low hills.

"The officers went to the area of Thomas Creek Road and US Forest Service Road 28 with a search warrant as part of a marijuana growing operation investigation," Hastings said.

"As officers arrived in the area, two unidentified Hispanic males fled on foot and were not captured. The interagency team seized the plants and also found two handguns and one rifle at the location."

Officers involved in the investigation and search are from Oregon State Police, Lake County Sheriff's Office, Lakeview Police Department, Klamath County Interagency Narcotics Team, and US Forest Service. The Lake County District Attorney was also present during the raid. Anyone with information regarding the suspects and investigation is asked to call Lake County 9-1-1.
