MARYSVILLE, Ohio (AP) — More than 500 marijuana plants and two shotguns have been seized by authorities from a central Ohio property that belongs to a significant supplier of fresh produce to restaurants and farmers’ markets in the area.
The Columbus Dispatch reports officers from the Union County Multi Agency Drug Enforcement Task Force on Tuesday seized the marijuana that authorities say is worth more than $500,000 from a property owned by Wayward Seed Farm. Phone records were also seized. No one has been charged in connection with the bust.
Capt. Jeff Frisch, of the Union County sheriff’s office, told the newspaper this was a sophisticated cultivation operation in which the marijuana plants were growing under cover with an irrigation system outdoors.
Calls to the business on today were not answered.
