Multiple law enforcement divisions spent two days collecting more than 250 marijuana plants found growing in northern Cayuga County.
The Auburn Police Department said that on Sept. 6 and 7, members of the Finger Lakes Drug Task Force in conjunction with the New York Army National Guard Counterdrug Task Force Air Assets, with assistance from state police, the Cayuga County Sheriff's Office and the Cayuga County District Attorney's Office, conducted the marijuana eradication detail.
The plants ranged in size from 3 to 10 feet and were removed from multiple properties in Cato, Victory, Conquest, Mentz, Throop and Brutus.
More information on the eradication was not immediately available Friday. APD said arrests will be forthcoming.
Police said that some of the marijuana will be kept as evidence until the case is disposed of. The rest will be left to dry before being incinerated with other old evidence at a later date.
