Authorities with the Macon County Sheriff's Office, State Bureau of Investigation, N.C. Wildlife, U.S. Forest Service and the Franklin Police Department spent the majority of Tuesday eradicating various outdoor marijuana grow operations throughout the county.
All in all, officers netted more than 130 marijuana plants.
According to Sheriff Robert Holland, the incident is still under investigation and there are little details at this time.
“There are no suspects, but officers are still following up on leads and information and conducting interviews as we speak,” Holland said on Wednesday.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of additional plants or of subjects that may have been involved in the grows are urged to contact the MCSO at (828)349-2104 or Crime Stoppers at (828)349-2600.
