Nearly 15-thousand marijuana plants seized from armed camp in Covert


COVERT (WKZO) -- Police have seized nearly 15-thousand marijuana plants in busting a grow operation in Van Buren County's Covert Township. The Southwest Enforcement Team was tipped off on July 29th about an armed camp growing marijuana on public lands.

Two Hispanic male suspects were allegedly observed tending to the operation before they fled into heavy underbrush. They are believed to have been aided in escaping the area somewhere along County Road 376.

Authorities are asking that anyone who may have seen someone being picked up along County Road 376 near I-196 that day to contact police.
