HONOBIA — Pushmataha County Undersheriff Jeremy Jones reported a 20,000-plant marijuana farm was recently discovered in Honobia.
Pushmataha deputies working with Drug Task Force District 7 uncovered the operation by helicopter after an anonymous tip. About 20 people were involved in the two-day operation resulting in two arrests thus far.
The farm consisted of four separate plots on two acres along the side of a mountain. Three of the plots had plants and the fourth was being prepared for seedlings. The farmers were running irrigation out of a creek using a 5.5 horsepower water pump.
Five to 10 plants were found per hole, ranging from four inches to four feet tall. The street value of the plants, had they been fully grown, is estimated at $20 million.
