A Large Amount of Marijuana Was Taken From An Illegal Grow Operation!
More than 5,400 plants and over 100 pounds of processed marijuana were confiscated from a large-scale illicit marijuana grow operation, the Michigan State Police (MSP) claimed. On Wednesday, February 15, the Michigan State Police (MSP) Marijuana and Tobacco Investigation Section (MTIS).
Along with the Ogemaw County prosecuting attorney, the MSP Emergency Support Team (ES Team), and the MSP West Branch Post, executed two residential search warrants at a large-scale illegal marijuana grow operation in Richland Township, Ogemaw County.
MSP reported that as a result of their investigation, they were able to seize 5,400 marijuana plants as well as over 100 pounds of processed marijuana.
