MARINETTE COUNTY – Officials say last week’s drug bust in Marinette County is one of the largest marijuana busts in state history.
Authorities say they confiscated 13,222 plants from a family operation taking place in two private areas.
“You can see that it was being very well cultivated,” said Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen. “It was a professional job. These plants were healthy, these plants were close to harvest.”
The bust was made after a tip from a fisherman and nearly two months of surveillance. Officials say the street value of the confiscated plants is likely more than $13 million.
