Marijuana plants discovered in Chapin area woods

Sep 27, 2011 4:27:00 PM - thestate.com
Law enforcement officers are trying to find out who grew seven marijuana plants discovered in woods near an unoccupied Chapin area home.

The plants, with a street value of about $7,000, were found in woods off Wessinger Road, according to a news release today from the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department.

A tip to the Sheriff’s Department led to the Sept. 19 discovery of the plants, grown in black containers and ranging from 5 feet to 7 feet tall, the release said. The plants appeared nearly ready to be harvested.

Officers with Lexington County Multi-Agency Narcotics Enforcement Team (NET), which also is involved in the investigation, have no evidence the homeowner knew the plants were there, the news release said.

Anyone with information is asked to called the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department at (803) 785-8230 or CrimeStoppers (888) CRIME-SC.
