Large marijuana-growing operation seized in Polk County
POLK COUNTY - A major marijuana growing operation has been discovered in Polk County.
According to reports, a hunter stumbled upon 13 fields of marijuana plants with a sophisticated irrigation system.
Polk County chief deputy Byron Lyons says more dealers are choosing to grow their marijuana inside the U.S. because it's much easier than transporting the contraband across the border.
Authorities are investigating to determine who is responsible for the marijuana.
