Sheriff’s Deputies busted a huge pot grow between Waterville and Orondo this morning.

press release states a citizen tipped off cops to the grow yesterday. When they got to a remote area of Pine

Canyon, authorities found 1,502 mature pot plants, ready to harvest at any time. They also found a makeshift

camp with a tent, sleeping bags, food, and cooking utensils. Deputies didn’t find anyone tending the

camp, or the plants.

The grow was larger than they anticipated, so some deputies camped out at the

grow overnight to secure the site, and a DEA helicopter lifted the plants out of the area. Police have no

suspects in the bust.
