Authorities busted a huge marijuana growing operation near Sacramento.

The grow was sophisticated and included an irrigation system. Drug agents used heavy equipment to scoop hundreds of pot plants into a dump truck. The exact amount of marijuana found or its value was unknown.

Neighbors said they were suspicious from the start. One tipped off authorities weeks ago after she saw a fence go up.

Paperwork left behind lists San Jose Collective, but the company refused to provide any answers.
