    The Cook County sheriff's police announced one of its biggest marijuana busts ever this morning — seizing 5,525 pounds worth an estimated $20 million.

    Undercover officers in masks showed off the pot this morning in a forest preserve facility in Maywood.

    It was seized from a home in the 7800 block of West 47th Street in Lyons, following a tip, officials said.

    Officers staked out the house Wednesday and arrested the owner as he left. He was found with a bale of marijuana. When officers went into the home, more than 200 other wrapped bales were found, officials said.

    The arrested man was labeled a high-level importer of marijuana.
