A marijuana-growing operation was discovered on Monday by a helicopter working with the Governor’s Task Force on Marijuana Eradication.
Jason Poore, the east team leader for the task force, said the marijuana plants were spread out over five locations South of the River.
About 2,470 plants ranging in height from 8 inches to 10 feet were discovered.
“Some of it had probably been out there for two and a half months,” Poore said. “It was still about a month or more from being ready to harvest.”
