SHERIFF DESTROYS MARIJUANA SITE

Dated 05/22/2012
 
  Sheriff's Office Destroys Marijuana Site

 

Acting on investigative leads provided by citizens the Hodgeman County Sheriff's Office located a site in southwest Hodgeman County where marijuana was found growing.  The plants were well concealed in a remote area near a water source and were in various stages of development. Cultivated mature marijuana plants can easily produce more than $1,000 in marijuana per plant and there is a nationwide push by law enforcement each year to locate and eradicate marijuana before the buds can be harvested. Sheriff Ron Ridley advised that the Sheriff's Office destroyed more than 3,000 plants which had growing at this single location.  The Sheriff's Office's investigation into this marijuana grow is on-going.
