Marinette County officials have uncovered another marijuana grow operation, and it may be connected to similar ones found last week in Menominee and Oconto Counties.
Marinette County Chief Sheriff’s Deputy Jerry Sauve says more than 3,000 plants were located and eradicated this week at a grow site found in a wooded area. While they don’t know for sure, officials believe it is connected to a larger bust last week that uncovered thousands of pounds of marijuana.
No arrests have been made in connection to the growing operation.
Sauve says they’ve suspected growing was going on in the County for some time, but it wasn’t until this week that a major effort was made to find it through a ground search. He says they suspect there may be others in the area, and anyone who finds marijuana growing in the woods should contact authorities.
