Jamestown, Ca — 768 marijuana plants were eradicated Friday in the Woods Creek area near Jacksonville Rd.
The Tuolumne County Sheriff´s Department says the patch was discovered by deer hunters last weekend. The hunters alerted the property owner, who in turn immediately contacted the Sheriff´s Department. The owner was unaware of the marijuana growing on his property.
The 786 plants ranged from two to six feet tall. They were heavily budded and ready for harvest. The Sheriff´s Department says it appears to be a “local” operation. If harvested, the street value would have been approximately $3.5 million.
