A task force this week removed nearly 4,000 marijuana plants with an estimated value of $7.4 million from Mount Charleston, Las Vegas police said Thursday.
The raid occurred Tuesday morning in rugged terrain about three miles northwest of the intersection of state Route 156 and state Route 158, police said.
A citizen’s tip sparked the raid. No suspects were around during the raid, police said.
Police said Tuesday’s raid was the fifth outdoor grow house found in Clark County this year.
The task force, called Southern Nevada HIDTA, has removed 36,000 plants worth an estimated value of $72 million in 2012, police said.
