More than a thousand illegal marijuana plants have been seized, following a late September search of Calhoun County.

The Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office worked alongside Marshall and Albion officers for three days to sweep the county by air, and then collect the more than 1,500 plants.  Most of the plants were found in cornfields, being planted there without the field owner knowing.

Other potential sites were determined to be legal under medical marijuana law.  Warrants are being sought for some of the illegal grows.
