AGUANGA (CNS) - A half-dozen people were arrested and several tons of illicitly grown marijuana were seized when the Riverside County Sheriff's Department served search warrants in Aguanga, deputies said on Tuesday, Aug. 20.

The sheriff's department served five warrants for suspected illegal marijuana cultivation on Monday. The warrants were requested after the deputies received "numerous complaints from residents,'' according to the sheriff's department.

More than 8,000 marijuana plants -- weighing approximately 7.36 tons -- were taken from properties in the area.

Deputies arrested six people in connection with the searches, and also recovered 10 illegally owned firearms, the sheriff's department said.
