Sgt. Michael R. Ochsner, Jr. of the Berwn Police Department said the marijuana recovered included locating two extensive growing operations and two storage facilities resulting in the recovery  of many dozen plants and manufactured cannabis.

“The Recovered illegal drugs had a street value of approximately $800,000,” Oschner said.
