Over a half ton of marijuana was seized in a San Juan Bautista drug raid. A team from the San Benito County Unified Narcotic Enforcement Unit were investigating a strong marijuana odor on the 9000 block of Betabel Road on Thursday when an officer tried to contact a vehicle leaving the premises. The car sped off and up to thirty men fled the building into a wooded area. Authorities were able to apprehend and arrest twelve suspects and confiscate more than 1,000 pounds of packaged pot. More arrests are expected as the investigation continues.
