COVERT TOWNSHIP, Mich.– The Van Buren County Sheriff’s Office received a tip of a possible marijuana grow operation in a wooded area on Wednesday, and the office’s Narcotics Unit detectives discovered plants that they confirmed to be marijuana.

Detectives found three areas where trees were cut down, and marijuana plants had been cultivated in the cleared land. They also found what appeared to be camp sites near the three plots of land.

Detectives found empty fertilizer bags, food wrappers, and other items. In addition, they found a large hole near the three growing areas that had wall supports and contained water.

A total of 1,732 plants were removed, and the estimated street value is $1.7 million. Investigators believe this operation may be related to one discovered on Aug. 22 where 1,781 plants were removed from the 78000 block of 40th Avenue.

The Van Buren County Sheriff’s Office asks anyone with information to call the office at (269)-657-3101.

    Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.

    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The design look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon.
