French police said Tuesday they had seized more than 3,000 cannabis plants from two illegal planting operations at a warehouse and a former bakery in the Champagne region, in a record haul.

The raids Monday on the warehouse in Essoyes and the ex-bakery in Virey-sous-Bar -- two villages a few kilometres apart in north-central France -- followed the arrests of three men in the Paris region, local police said.

The men were arrested after a three-month operation, police said.

The previous record seizure in France was of 700 plants discovered in February 2011 at a warehouse in La Courneuve outside Paris.
