Santa Clara County’s sheriff’s deputies detained 12 individuals and seized thousands of marijuana plants on Wednesday during a bust on an illegal marijuana grow operation in unincorporated Morgan Hill.

The sheriff’s office’s marijuana eradication team swarmed a property just before noon near the intersection of Miramonte and Dougherty avenues.

Deputies also recovered 21 firearms at the scene.

The law enforcement operation snarled traffic in the one-lane roads around the area, according to nearby businesses.
