Ca - Modesto police say they've seized hundreds of marijuana plants after an officer on patrol in a suburban neighborhood noticed a strong smell of marijuana.

After obtaining a search warrant for a home and its adjoining property, Modesto police Det. Darren Ruskamp says officers on Friday uncovered an underground tunnel leading from an outdoor shed.

Inside the tunnel, officers and members of a narcotics enforcement team say they found two underground growing rooms filled with 255 marijuana plants.

Investigators estimate the plants could produce nearly $300,000 worth of marijuana every three months.

Also uncovered during the search was a pound of processed marijuana.

After arresting one suspect so far in the case, police say they are about to make at least two more arrests.
