URBANA, Ohio (WDTN) – It is that time of year when law enforcement has an eye for finding pot fields.

The Champaign County Sheriff’s Office says it confiscated 332 plants from across the county Wednesday.

Deputies say a fully mature marijuana plant can be worth as much as $2,000 a plant once processed and sold.

The county uses a helicopter to spot the plant fields from the air.

The Darke County Sheriff’s Office conducted an eradication effort Tuesday. It produced more than 200 plants with an estimated value of over $200,000.
