KESHENA, WI (WTAQ) - Authorities have burned over 900 marijuana plants seized in an ongoing drug investigation at the Menominee Indian Reservation in northeast Wisconsin.
Federal, state, and tribal agencies are still investigating the operation. As of Wednesday morning, no one’s been arrested yet.
Officials said the pot was worth just over $1.3 million. It’s one of the largest drug discoveries in recent years in the woods of northeast Wisconsin.
Twelve people were charged in 2010, and 7 others last year, as officers broke up separate marijuana operations at the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest that covers much of northern Wisconsin.
