HICKORY, Ky. -- Kentucky State Police have gone on the offensive against marijuana production in three counties in far western Kentucky.
State police say that as of last Friday morning, 589 marijuana plants had been eradicated in Livingston, Lyon and Trigg counties. Those plants would have brought an estimated street value of nearly $1.2 million if they had reached maturity.
Police say two people had been arrested and charged with cultivating marijuana as part of the crackdown.
Authorities are urging people to come forward with any information regarding marijuana production. State police say the callers may remain anonymous.
