LAKE LOS ANGELES, Calif. (AP) — Investigators say a Southern California man arrested three months ago for marijuana cultivation is in jail again after a deputy discovered his new five-acre pot farm in the Mojave Desert.

The latest Lancaster marijuana grow, which had plants growing up to eight-feet-tall, was found Wednesday by the same Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy who arrested 36-year-old Abdul Jamar in June.

The latest crop is worth an estimated $4 million.

A sheriff's news release says the marijuana was concealed by a pair of 50-foot by 100-foot plywood enclosures.

Investigators say Jamar's latest pot farm is about six miles from the marijuana grow busted in June.

Jamar has been booked for investigation of cultivation of marijuana and he remains jailed.
