Officers Seize About A Thousand Marijuana Plants


Wilson County Sheriff Wayne Gay says each marijuana plant yields about a pound of the drug with a street value between $800 to a thousand dollars.


Stantonsburg, NC -- Officers in Wilson County raided a marijuana growing operation Monday and seized some one thousand plants worth more than one million dollars.

Acting Stantonsburg Police Chief Chris Wilkerson says hunters found the marijuana field and told his office about it Sunday.

The chief and another officer went to the field where they saw four men, who escaped on foot.

Wilson County Sheriff Wayne Gay says each marijuana plant yields about a pound of the drug with a street value between $800 to a thousand dollars. The sheriff says the plants will be burned.

No pot arrests yet

By Jeff Kennedy Daily Times Staff Writer

Members of the Wilson County Sheriff's Office say they hope they can track down the growers of a large marijuana operation found near Stantonsburg over the weekend.


While no arrests have been made, investigators have determined that the landowner was not involved.

Stantonsburg police and sheriff's deputies seized more than $1 million worth of marijuana Monday in a wooded area off Peacock's Bridge Road, which runs from N.C. 58 to Sand Pit Road. Stantonsburg police had been notified Sunday of the fields by hunters in the area.

"We're still investigating and it's ongoing," Sheriff's Lt. D.W. Bailey said this morning. "We think there probably will be arrests."

The Sheriff's Office contacted the owner of the farm where the marijuana was found Monday, Bailey said. The owner, whose name the Sheriff's Office did not release, lives out of town.

"He is not involved in any way," Bailey said. "We had to make contact with him and let him know what's going on."

Investigators said in operations like this the growers generally choose a secluded area and tend the fields surreptitiously without the property owners, or neighbors, knowing what activities are taking place.

"That's what they usually do ? go on somebody's land without them knowing about it."

The Sheriff's Office found evidence of five fields of marijuana at the site. All had been harvested except the one where the marijuana they seized was growing. Investigators found more marijuana at the site already bagged, and other plants that were being dried and processed.

The remaining field, which contained marijuana with a street value of about $1 million, was in the process of being harvested. Investigators found refuse, indicating the growers were probably at the site for long periods of time while harvesting the crop.

They didn't go in and out," Bailey said. "They stayed there and worked. ... I guess they were trying to beat the first frost."

Stantonsburg police and sheriff's deputies confiscated about 1,000 plants from the field, which Bailey estimated to be 100 feet by 100 feet.

"It was a right big little area," Bailey said.

The fields were deep in the woods. Bailey estimated trails leading into and around the area totaled about a mile.
