COLORADO SPRINGS -

DEA agents served search warrants at locations in Colorado Springs and Denver as part of an investigation into illegal marijuana grows.

A source says the 20 targets of the raids are all people who were growing marijuana in homes for the purpose of shipping pot out of state for sale. Four locations in Colorado Springs are under investigation. No information on if any arrests have been made, this is all one investigation all sites are connected. Sources say this is not a federal crackdown from President Trump's administration, and the growers did not move from out of state to grow the marijuana. 

The agents are assisting the 18th Judicial District with search warrants at 20 locations. The raids are taking place in El Paso County, Arapahoe County, Douglas County and Elbert County.

The El Paso County Sheriff's Office assisted the DEA with a search warrant at two locations on Town Center Drive in the southeastern part of Colorado Springs, Falconry Drive on the eastside, and North Stone. A spokesperson for the El Paso County Sheriff's Office says investigators did not find anything at one of the Town Center Drive locations. 

News5 is told the majority of the searches took place overnight at homes and business.
