LAS VEGAS (AP) — A tip from a citizen led law officers in southern Nevada to an indoor marijuana farm at Mount Charleston with nearly 4,000 pot plants worth an estimated $7.4 million.
Federal agents assisted Las Vegas police in a raid Tuesday in the rugged terrain about 3 miles northwest of the intersections of state routes 156 and 158.
No suspects have been arrested.
Police say it's the fifth major outdoor grow house shut down in Clark County this year.
The raid was led by a task force made up of officers for the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, Las Vegas and North Las Vegas police. So far this year, the team has removed 36,000 plants worth an estimated $72 million.
