Indiana police officers seized 450 pounds of dried marijuana, 600 marijuana plants and a freezer containing 30 raccoon hides and carcasses during a Sunday search of a rural Pulaski County home.
Authorities valued the pot at $3.6 million, while the estimated value of the raccoon hides was not revealed.
It is illegal to possess untanned hides and carcasses of furbearing animals in Indiana more than 30 days after the trapping season closes, according to Indiana Conservation Officer Gene Davis.
Illegal possession of untanned raccoon hides is a misdemeanor, and each illegal animal is subject to a replacement fee paid to the state.
Davis, who assisted local and state police, said that no arrests were made in Sunday's search. He also said that officers seized several guns during the search.
Pulaski County is located in north central Indiana east of Kankakee and Iroquois counties.
