Undercover operation nets $250,000 in pot

SAN MATEO COUNTY

Narcotics task force agents served five search warrants last week and found 640 pot plants, seven pounds of processed marijuana and $1,700 in suspected drug profits.

Agents also arrested three suspects, said to be members of an Asian drug trafficking organization. They face multiple drug-related charges and one for theft of utilities because the electricity panels had been bypassed at the grow sites. The suspects have been released on bail.
