3K marijuana plants found in national forest

Officials in western Montana say they have removed an estimated 3,000  marijuana plants and an extensive drip irrigation system from a growing  operation spotted during aerial surveillance of the Lolo National Forest.

The U.S. Forest Service and the Mineral County sheriff’s office said Tuesday  the plants had a street value estimated at $8 million.

No suspects were observed at the site when it was discovered and officers  believe the area has been abandoned. Officials are asking anyone who may have  seen suspicious activity in the Superior District of the forest to contact law  enforcement.

Forest Service Special Agent in Charge Jonathan Herrick says grow operations  have been discovered in national forests throughout the country, and now the  problem has arrived in Montana.
