Los Angeles police seize nearly $20 million in illegal marijuana

LOS ANGELES - Los Angeles police say they've seized nearly $20 million worth of illegal marijuana at a downtown building.

The bust was announced Thursday.

Police say a complaint led them to a building in downtown's Flower District where they found bags of marijuana and jars of hash oil, a marijuana concentrate also known as honey oil.

Police say they also seized an AR15 rifle, handguns, lab equipment and $150,000 in cash.

Authorities say the building apparently was an unlicensed pot processing facility.

Four people were arrested.
