The Calhoun County Sheriff's Department confiscated fifty marijuana plants Saturday afternoon from a wooded area off lower Pine Creek Road, about two miles West of Grantsville. Sheriff Allen Parsons said the six to nine foot plants had a street value up to $150,000.

Hunters stumbled onto the pot patch, said Parsons.

He said the patch was "well groomed" with 150 feet of turkey wire to protect the patch. He said it was a little unusual to have a patch near the top of a hill, but two holes had been dug to collect much needed water.

No arrests have been made. Sheriff Parsons said the investigation in continuing.
