COPY-Investigators find western Wis. cabin full of pot
STARK, Wis. (AP) - Drug investigators arrested a 45-year-old man after finding a rural western Wisconsin cabin filled with dried marijuana plants.
Vernon County Sheriff's Lt. Scott Bjerkos told the La Crosse Tribune (http://bit.ly/1qQxyeO) the bust in rural La Farge Friday morning was one of their largest. The dried plants that filled a cargo van were estimated to be worth $100,000.
Sheriff John Spears says investigators suspect the plants were grown about 20 miles away in the town of Franklin.
Investigators say a 45-year-old man fled from an outbuilding of the cabin when authorities arrived with a search warrant. Spears say they found him in the woods about a quarter-mile away, along with knives, marijuana and a pipe he hid under leaves.
