Wayne Authorities Find 15K Marijuana Plants

Posted June 3, 2006

— In what authorities called one of the largest discoveries of marijuana plants in county history, Wayne County investigators found more than 15,000 thousand plants.

Investigators said the plants would have produced nearly $37 million worth of pot if they'd grown to maturity. Authorities bulldozed the plants, and investigators haven't made any arrests in the case.
