The raids took place at multiple locations on Wednesday, but sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Ray Kelly posted on Facebook that deputies would be clearing out one facility on the 800 block of 77th Ave. of Oakland’s Fitchburg neighborhood for several days.

The facilities were equipped with the latest technology in terms of equipment, lighting, generators and supplies.

“The enormity and complexity of this illegal grow operation cannot be expressed in words or pictures, it’s unbelievable,” Kelly posted.
