Holmes county sheriff's deputies are looking for some farmers who were growing an illegal crop.
Deputies were carrying out a marijuana eradication mission yesterday, with the help of the Jackson County sheriff's office helicopter.
The chopper crew spotted a large field of pot in the northwest section of the county. Deputies moved in and seized 575-plants, ranging from small seedlings to 8-foot tall mature
Holmes County Sheriff Tim Brown says the plants are the largest found so far this year but not as large as years in the past. "We continue to work on the marijuana searches and it may not be as it was at one time, but it's still out there, we're still looking for it and if we find it we're gonna get it."
Sheriff's officials have already incinerated the pot plants. They're still looking for the people who were cultivating the crop.
