Oklahoma law officers find about 600 marijuana plants at old farm
Lincoln County law officers found a large patch of marijuana on an old farm. Law officers destroyed about 600 marijuana plants.
McLOUD — Lincoln County sheriff's deputies were looking for additional marijuana fields Tuesday after a find last week of about 600 marijuana plants with an estimated street value of $500,000, Sheriff Charlie Dougherty said.

Dougherty said law officers are continuing to search areas of the county. No arrests were made in connection with the patch of plants found Thursday near McLoud. The patch was in the area of State Highway 62 and State Highway 102.
“We're not disclosing the exact location because we haven't made any arrests,” Dougherty said.
A team of 17 deputies, along with drug task force agents from the district attorney's office, pulled the plants by hand. The marijuana was destroyed, he said.
“We pulled it and sprayed it and took it to another location and destroyed it,” Dougherty said
The Kickapoo tribal police also have investigated the marijuana.
Dougherty said a tip prompted deputies to find the plants at an old farm. The land could only be accessed by deputies on foot or by four-wheelers.
Some of the plants were up to seven feet tall.
Dougherty said a neighbor looking for his lost dog stumbled across the plants and contacted deputies.
