More than 2,000 marijuana plants were seized Friday during a Riverside County sheriff’s operation in Perris.

Deputies served search warrants at three vacant parcels in the area of Diana Street and West San Jacinto Avenue, following an investigation that uncovered illegal grows on the properties, according to sheriff’s Sgt. David Marshall.

He said the operation resulted in the confiscation of roughly 2,100 marijuana plants “in various stages of growth,” but no arrests were made.

The plants were slated for destruction, according to the sergeant.

There was no word on who may have been tending the sites or for how long before they were discovered.

The investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information was asked to contact the sheriff’s Perris station at 951-210-1000.
