Two Arrested on Marijuana Grow
On September 28th, 2013, hunter’s reported what they believed to be a “weed grow” on U.S. Army Corps of Engineers ground at the lower Ferguson Marsh in Valley Falls, Kansas. A Kansas Wildlife and Parks Officer met with the hunters and viewed the marijuana field. The Kansas Wildlife and Parks Officer determined that the marijuana field discovered was not wild, but was in fact a cultivated grow. The Kansas Wildlife and Parks Officer requested assistance from the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office on this investigation.
During the following week officers spent several hours watching the marijuana field.
On Friday, October 4th, 2013, at dark two officers, one from the Kansas Wildlife and Parks, and one from the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, were watching the marijuana field, when they noticed two lights coming towards the field.
