URBANA, Ohio (WDTN) – The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigations and the Champaign County Sheriff’s Office pulled up some illegal pot plants across the county this week.

The eradication effort netted 115 plants. Deputies say each plant can produce up to $2,000 worth of pot for street sales.

The eradication effort began in April and will continue through October. A helicopter was used to spot the plants from the sky.

Investigators are now working to link the pot plants to suspects.

Eradication efforts in July came up with 332 illegal plants growing in hidden spots around the county.
