FONTANA, Calif. (AP) - A Southern California man faces drug charges after police say they seized $4.5 million worth of marijuana from two of his foreclosed houses.

Fontana police Sgt. Jeff Decker says a bank employee was inspecting a house owned by Angel Wayhang Kou when he discovered marijuana plants on May 1.

That led officers to another five-bedroom house of Kou's that was in foreclosure, where they say they found another major growing operation.

Kou was arrested Saturday and was released after posting bail. Attempts to reach him early Wednesday were unsuccessful.
