Virginia state police say that they have taken two men into custody on multiple drug charges and that they are holding the men at Central Virginia Regional Jail. The men were taken into custody after state police followed up on a tip from a concerned citizen on Sept. 21. The citizen reportedly discovered marijuana plants growing in a field in Fluvanna County.
Upon investigation by a trooper and two Virginia State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation agents, 110 marijuana plants between 10 and 12 feet tall and valued at $330,000 were allegedly discovered. Further investigation resulted in the two men being detained on Oct. 2. Search warrants of the men's homes were carried out and reportedly uncovered 41 weapons, about $14,000 in cash and 172 pounds of marijuana valued at $602,000.
