Last year, there was a $10 million pot bust in Malibu Creek State Park and Zuma Canyon, netting over 3,500 plants. Apparently, the illegal growers didn’t get the memo that people are looking out for them now, because another 900 plants and 3,000 seeds were just seized again in Malibu Creek State Park.
Two men were caught tending to the plants, and were apprehended and charged with suspicion of marijuana possession, possession of a concealed firearm, and destruction of plants and geological features after a chase.
No word on whether or not this operation had any of the harmful fire pits or irrigation systems of the previous raid.
