Huron County Sheriff Kelly Hanson and Deputy Ryan Swartz accompanied a Michigan Air National Guard helicopter crew for a flyover of Huron County in search of marijuana on Tuesday.
Hanson said about two dozen marijuana plants were seized from locations throughout Huron County. In the photo at right, Swartz is shown with some of the bundled marijuana seized and the helicopter used for Tuesday’s operation.
More marijuana plants were found “at other locations,” though details were not provided. Hanson said the county is monitoring some locations “to see if anyone is interested in claiming.”
Charges may result in at least one of the discoveries, Hanson said, and prosecutors are expected to review further.
