Wood chipper used to destroy 12,000 marijuana plants in Curry County

Law enforcement put nearly 12,000 mature marijuana plants through a wood chipper Monday while dismantling a grow operation found in a remote corner of Curry County near the California border, Sheriff John Ward said.

A helicopter surveyed the area from the air, and an armed ground team entered the grow first to make sure the area was safe, Ward said.

They found a camouflaged living structure and evidence of weapons and chemicals.

No one was present as law enforcement moved in.
