Jupiter, CA– Marijuana growers, who thought the Tuolumne Narcotics Team would not be back, should have known better.
Last Monday, TNT eradicated an 8,000 plant marijuana garden north of Italian Bar Road near the Stanislaus River Canyon. After flying over the area again later in the week however, they discovered there was another section of the same garden.
Tuolumne County Sheriff´s officials say they went back today to destroy the 3,000 additional plants found. Officials say an area used for processing and drying marijuana was also discovered.
There was also a large tarp in a tree containing about ten pounds of marijuana bud inside. Officials add the growers were sleeping next to the marijuana and fled the scene before the Narcotics Team arrived.
