HILLSVILLE — Carroll deputies, Virginia State Police troopers and Virginia Department of Forestry personnel swooped in on a patch of pot plants in the Cana area Thursday.
Authorities had eyes in the sky with a state police helicopter on a marijuana eradication flight, and they spotted about 50 plants from the air, says Carroll Sheriff Warren Manning.
Each plant would be worth $1,000 if peddled as an illegal drug on the street, so this bust kept about $50,000 of pot from being sold, he said.
