BUFFALO — Officers with the Floyd County Sheriff’s Department have confiscated 59 marijuana plants that were being cultivated in a hidden field near Cow Creek on Wednesday.


Deputy Landon Hall says the investigation began from an anonymous tip the sheriff’s department received. He and Chief Greg Clark discovered the field were directed to was tucked away a rural neighborhood, not visible from the nearby roadway.


“I had to do a little digging,” Hall said. “Whoever was doing this, they knew what they were doing.”


The investigation turned up the nearly five dozen marijuana plants, each between three and five feet tall, totaling an estimated street value of $118,000, according to Hall.


Investigation by Deputy Hall is ongoing, and the department believes they will have a suspect within a week.
