MARINETTE, Wis. (AP) — Authorities in northeastern Wisconsin say they've destroyed another secluded marijuana farm.
The Marinette County Sheriff's Department says in a statement deputies found the grow in the central section of the county during a ground search on Tuesday. They were looking for grows that might be linked to massive marijuana plots police eradicated in the southeastern tip of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest last week.
Twelve men have been charged in federal court in connection with those plots.
The sheriff's department says deputies confiscated more than 3,000 plants from the Marinette County grow. They did not say whether anyone had been arrested. Sheriff James J. Kanikula didn't immediately return a phone message.
