MANNFORD, Okla. (AP) - The Creek County Sheriff's Office found so much high-quality marijuana growing in a wooded area near Mannford that they needed four trucks to haul it away.
Creek County Sheriff's Capt. Mike O'Keefe says the field stretched across more than an acre and was nearly ready for harvest. He said the pot is conservatively estimated to be worth more than $100,000.
O'Keefe says the male plants had been separated from the well-tended patch to allow the female plants to grow large buds, which are the most potent part of the plant.
He says investigators from several departments are working to identify suspects in the operation, which may include the landowner. Subpoenas are being sought for water bills to the property.
