Police in northeastern Kansas say they've seized about 2,700 pounds of marijuana from a vacant landscaping company warehouse in a Johnson County industrial park.

The seizure Friday morning by Lenexa police follows a recent investigation and arrest by the federal Drug Enforcement Administration in Indianapolis, plus an arrest in the Kansas City area.

Lenexa police say undercover officers investigated the warehouse for the past week and found hundreds of boxes of plastic cups. Police say each box contained two bundles of marijuana hidden behind plastic cup sleeves.

Authorities estimate the street value of the marijuana at $1.5 million. Police said details of the arrests would be released later, and more arrests are expected.
