EAGLE POINT, Ore. (KTVZ) – More than 2,800 illegal marijuana plants were seized from 10 greenhouses Wednesday in a raid on a property in the southern Oregon town of Eagle Point, Oregon State Police said Thursday.

The OSP Southwest Region Drug Enforcement Section team, assisted by the Medford Police Illegal Marijuana Enforcement Team and Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, served a search warrant in the 11000 block of East Antelope Road, troopers said. It was the third major marijuana raid in Eagle Point in the past two weeks.
