Oregon Marijuana Grow – Marijuana Growers in Wallowa County Arrested
Oregon state police and other states agencies recently found a marijuana plantation in Wallowa County, Oregon. The marijuana grow was found in a very remote part of the county. So far, it is believed to be the largest outdoor marijuana plantation ever found in the state.
The amount of land that the marijuana grow covered was unprecedented, and more than a mile of land was devoted to the plantation.
La Grande Police Sergeant, John Shaul expressed amazement at the amount of marijuana being grown, calling it “staggering.” Shaul stated in the press release, “Many people would be outraged at the damage to our public lands caused by illegal marijuana growers.”
As noted in the press release, the following people were arrested and taken into custody: Arturo Barrera, 26, Federico Carrasco, 24, Christian Gonzalez, 28, Fredy Montes, 32, Jesus Sanchez, 21 and Audel Soto, 29.
Since these fine gentleman haven't yet shown up on the inmate roster (NOTE: use Umatilla County list for Wallowa) we don't know for sure but I'm willing to go out on a limb here and say that at least some of them are here illegaly.
It's always exciting to see another "biggest" drug bust perpetrated by folks who shouldn't be here in the first place.
