$2.8M marijuana crop found in White Mountains; 1000's of pot plants uprooted


FORT APACHE INDIAN RESERVATION (KVOA) -- Arizona DPS troopers uprooted 2,413 marijuana plants growing in a large-scale crop found south of Cibecue on the Fort Apache Indian Reservation in northern Arizona.

The White Mountain Apache Tribe alerted DPS last Friday, August 19, after two armed men confronted a tribal member near the illegal marijuana crop.

In a statement released to the media, DPS Captain Jennifer Pinnow said, "Fortunately for all, no one was harmed by this illegal activity before law enforcement could take action."
