Thousands of marijuana plants seized in Sedgwick County, Kansas

SEDGWICK COUNTY, Kansas– Thousands of marijuana plants were seized by authorities Wednesday morning. Officials say a marijuana grow in Sedgwick County had a street value in the millions.

Officials conducted the bust after land growers in Bentley reported it. That’s where agents say the suspects were growing anywhere from 5,000 to 9,000 plants.

Authorities found a campsite where the suspects apparently stayed around the clock. It’s believed flooding forced them out.

The KBI says the plants were valued at $1,000 each.

"Some of it stays local, some of it goes outside of the area,” said Special Agent Rod Page with the KBI. “Kansas is a very fertile area for marijuana grow. It always has been."

This is the biggest bust in Sedgwick County since May of last year when 10,000 marijuana plants were seized.

Re: Thousands of marijuana plants seized in Sedgwick County, Kansas

It always amazes me at the different dollar amounts put on individual plants when these types of busts are reported.

Whether it be the media, DEA or other local law enforcement agencies; the numbers are all over the place depending on the general local as well as time of year; it also seems that values are dependent on other sensational news making headlines at the time.

Different quality organics naturally demand different prices but the amount reported by the media can in no way accurately represent the actual street value paid by SWIY's everywhere. Just some food for thought...

Cheers!
