Marijuana Plants Found In Livingston County

Police have discovered more than 500 marijuana plants during a two-day helicopter search in Livingston County.

Lt. Philip Menna, acting supervisor of the Livingston and Washtenaw Narcotics Enforcement Team, said the search conducted Monday and Tuesday revealed plants that could produce up to a pound of marijuana, with a street value of $800 to $1,000.

Menna did not immediately know how many people could face charges. He tells the Livingston County Daily Press & Argus that charges could be authorized after the Michigan State Police Northville Crime Lab analyzes the suspected marijuana .

The investigation was part of the department’s Help Eliminate Marijuana Planting program. Operation HEMP is the state’s eradication-and-suppression program for pot.
