This area is located in the 1500 block of Rancho Conejo Boulevard in Thousand Oaks near a gated community.   A number of investigators descended into the area where they discovered a large marijuana garden with over 3,800 plants in various stages of growth. The area was searched for suspects, but none were found. Investigators spent several hours eradicating the plants and collecting evidence. Anyone with information on the suspect(s) involved in the cultivation can provided the information by calling the Ventura County Sheriff's Department or Crime Stoppers.
