Detectives with the Butte County Sheriff's Office Special Enforcement Unit and BINTF uncovered a large illegal marijuana grow in Concow Tuesday.
The grow, located between Big Bend Road and Dark Canyon Road, was spotted by agents earlier this month. Today they hiked into the grow location and found plants that were being watered by the diversion from a nearby creek using dip tubing.
Agents found evidence of marijuana sales and a total of 80 pounds of processed and packaged marijuana. In addition to the processed and packaged marijuana, agents seized 4,291 plants.
