An anonymous tip recently led Owen County Sheriff Zemer Hammond to a small marijuana growth operation within the city limits of Owenton.
Hammond said his office received the tip around 8 p.m. July 1.
“When we got the tip, we went straight on over there,” Hammond said. “There was five plots of it and it averaged three to four plants to a plot.”
The secluded patches, off West Perry Street, were surrounded by chicken wire in an unmaintained area, Hammond said.
No arrests have been made and Hammond said the investigation is ongoing.
