OAKLAND, CA (WFLX) - Police in California stumble onto a fortune cookie factory filled with pot plants.

Police say they didn't know the operation was there; even though, it's just blocks from the police department.

How did they find out? The factory caught fire. Firefighters came out to put out the flames, and stumbled upon the pot plants. "Looks like about a thousand marijuana plants. It would be about a half million dollars, street value," said Officer Alan Yu, Oakland Police "What I know, as a foot patrol officer, this fortune cookie place has been clsoed for about a year."

The pot factory operators are still at large.
