Joint operation fells 300 pot plants

 

A joint operation of the Westchester County police and the Putnam County Sheriff's Department worked to remove the plants, some as tall as six feet and within days of being ready to harvest.

 

 

Interrupted briefly by heavy afternoon rainfall, at least a dozen officers removed the plants by helicopter and secured it on the soccer field behind the Oscawana Lake Road School.

 

 

Police have not yet commented officially on the find. A statement is expected later this evening.

 

 

This is Putnam's second such illicit pot farm discovered in a month.

 

 

More than 400 similarly sized pot plants were found July 23 at an abandoned farm near Route 312 in Southeast. They were taken to Albany to be destroyed by state police.

 

 

That field was off Pugsley Road near the Putnam County-owned Tilly Foster Farm. Officials did not believe it was on county property.

 

 

Police generally find marijuana plants outdoors in late summer and early fall, when they have reached maturity. In 2008, state police seized more than 7,000 plants throughout New York.
