$8 million worth of pot plants seized Nevada

RENO, Nev. (AP) – Authorities in north-central Nevada have seized $8 million worth of marijuana plants in a remote section of the Santa Rosa mountain range about 20 miles south of the Oregon border.

Humboldt County Undersheriff Curtiss Kull says investigators recovered more than 4,000 plants on Friday from the secret cultivation site near Orovado about 40 miles north of Winnemucca.

He says they become suspicious after a Reno man and his son reported on Monday that they had come across three men who had told them they couldn’t hunt in the isolated area on the edge of the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest.

Kull says no arrests have been made but an investigation is continuing.
