State Troopers uncover large-scale marijuana crop

MINERVA During the recent search for missing Keene man, Jeremy Quinn, police have discovered a multi-million dollar marijuana crop growing in a remote section of woods outside Minerva. The crop was spotted by New York State Police aviation units while responding to the missing persons search being coordinated by State Forest Rangers. Following the discovery of Quinns body Sept. 10, officers turned their attention to an area where an estimated 2,000 mature plants were growing along a one mile section of a secluded creek. Initial police reports indicate the site to be one of the largest ever found in the region. Due to the lack of roads leading into the area, police were forced to secure access by helicopter and ATVs. The plants were removed and destroyed but officers admitted that arrests in such cases are rare due to property owners being unaware of the illegal activity and the overall lack of evidence, despite the well attended crop.
