Cops bust $8M pot operation

Cops busted an $8 million marijuana ring yesterday, finding 8,000 marijuana plants in seven houses in upstate New York.

The ring was reportedly the largest indoor operation ever found in the New York area, supplying marijuana to customers up and down the eastern seaboard.

Along with Drug Enforcement Agency officers, NYPD officers found the one-pound plants in Sullivan County after pulling over a car and searching it when it smelled like weed.

Finding marijuana, they then searched seven houses, finding a marijuana ring that sold the pot in New York City and Philadelphia.

The 16 suspects were expected to be arraigned today in White Plains Federal Court.
