A truck load of marijuana with a street value of about $18 million was all pulled out of a yard just several feet away from Glacier Point Middle School.
The other location a few blocks away had over 1,500 plants growing.
"Growing as if they were regular crops right out in the open," said John Donnelly said.
DEA Agents say the raids were part of what they call 'Operation Mercury.'
Warning letters were sent out before hand to both locations, but agents say the growers failed to cooperate.
"If we come to your door, you've had your chance," said Donnelly.
"$18 million? And you're just now busting them?" said Jenny Howell, a concerned resident.
DEA agents say the plants were grown under medical marijuana recommendations, but most of it was being trafficked out of state.
"The mark up of the marijuana sold east of here is pretty high," said Donelly.
Fresno County Sheriff, Margaret Mims says there were rumors from students at the school about drugs nearby.
"It concerns me because the link of violence to these grows, that it's so close to school grounds," said Mims.
A first grade school teacher says she hopes these raids will prompt more pot busts.
"A long time ago, you assumed things would happen in certain areas, but now it's everywhere you live." said Young.
