HEBRON (AP) — Police in northern Illinois found a rural marijuana-growing operation worth about $1 million.
McHenry County Sheriff's deputies were called to a campsite near Hebron on Saturday for a trespassing complaint. A resident found the campsite and startled two men, who ran away.
Deputies responding found two cleared spots in a densely wooded area. They called the sheriff's narcotics unit, which recovered about 2,000 marijuana seedlings, fertilizer, soil, hoses, plant food, water and camping equipment.
Hebron is near the Wisconsin-Illinois state line. Deputies could not locate the two men.
