$120,000 in Marijuana Plants Eradicated in LaPorte County

These marijuana plants were eradicated from a LaPorte County cornfield

Detectives and members of the LaPorte County Metro Operations Unit and the Indiana State Police Marijuana Eradication Team removed 40 large, mature marijuana plants from a cornfield on Small Road just east of County Road 500 West in LaPorte County.

Surveillance of the area and tips from the public led to the confiscation of the plants which would have sold on the street for approximately $120,000.

The plants will be destroyed.
