Man spotted dumping marijuana plants after eradication effort

A Thursday marijuana eradication effort resulted in the discovery of about 300 plants.

The Ross County Sheriff’s Office detail covered several areas of the county, including Londonderry, where a woman reported seeing a man come out of a cornfield with a bag after law enforcement helicopters left the area.

According to a sheriff’s report, the woman had noticed the helicopters in the area for several hours and, once they left, she told deputies she saw a man come out of a field off Vigo Road with a bag at 4:17 p.m.

She said the man, who was about 5 feet 10 inches, 275 pounds and wearing a blue shirt and brown pants, put the bag in a yard before leaving the area.

Deputies checked the bag and found several freshly cut marijuana plants.

An August eradication effort by the sheriff’s office, U.S. 23 Major Crimes Task Force, Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation and the Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections resulted in the discovery of 164 marijuana plants.
