Marijuana raid conducted near Middletown

MIDDLETOWN – Local and state law enforcement officials were involved in a day-long marijuana eradication on Wednesday.


The operation began around 7 a.m. Wednesday, according to Capt. James Bauman of the Lake County Sheriff's Office.


Bauman said sheriff's deputies, along with agents from the state's Campaign Against Marijuana Planting (CAMP), were involved in the operation.


He said it took place along a five mile stretch in the area of Dry Creek Road and the Dry Creek Cutoff near Middletown.


In all, about 5,800 marijuana plants were eradicated, said Bauman, who didn't have a season eradication total immediately available.


Area residents reported seeing numerous trucks, cars and agents as part of the operation, along with a helicopter.


Bauman estimated that there is at least another month of eradication work ahead for officials before the marijuana growing season ends for the year.
