Nelson County pot bust yields 5,400 plants

Law enforcement agencies working in Nelson County on Tuesday seized more than 5,400 marijuana plants with an estimated value of more than $16 million.

Agents from the Virginia State Police and the Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control discovered six different plots of marijuana plants in the areas of Howardsville, Roseland, Tyro and Schuyler, said Keith Kincaid, a senior special agent with the Virginia State Police.

Most were smaller amounts, with fewer than 100 marijuana plants on each piece of land. But the largest amount was found in Schuyler, Kincaid said, where agents discovered 5,204 marijuana plants in one area.

Last week, we found over 6,250 in Buckingham County, he said. We used to think 100 plants was a decent size grow. Now were finding every once in a while these 5,000-, 7,000- or 8,000-plant grows.

Oh, darn.
