State Authorities launched a seek-and-destroy mission this month, and on Wednesday, they found what they were looking for.

In a raid at Mount Madonna County Park in Santa Clara, state and county agents located and destroyed 20,000 immature marijuana plants worth an estimated $25-30 million. A helicopter pilot spotted the crop and authorities quickly destroyed the plants.

According to KTVU, no one was arrested, but authorities said there was evidence of people guarding and tending to the crop, including tools and supplies. The plants were on four sites including two plots within park property and two on private property. The raid was part of a state marijuana eradication campaign.
