Police in northern Illinois found a rural marijuana-growing operation worth about $1 million.

McHenry County sheriff's deputies were called to a campsite near Hebron on Saturday for a trespassing complaint. A resident found the campsite and startled two men, who ran away.

Deputies responding found two cleared spots in a densely wooded area. They called the sheriff's narcotics unit, which recovered about 2,000 marijuana seedlings, fertilizer, soil, hoses, plant food, water and camping equipment.

Deputies could not locate the two men.
