Large Marijuana Growing Operation In Camden Discovered By Police

Posted: Updated:

CAMDEN, Del. - Police say they have seized a large amount of marijuana, from a grow operation in Camden.

Delaware State Police say on Monday, around 5:45 PM, Troopers responded to a wooded area East of Almshouse Road and South of Westville Road, where they found 855 marijuana plants. Police say the plants totaled around 380 pounds, and were growing in an area where trees had been cut and cleared.

There was reportedly an irrigation system set up by the unknown suspects, who apparently had a gas powered generator powering a pump that was getting water from a nearby stream. Police say they also found tools including a machete and a pick axe, tents, sleeping bags, and several articles of men's clothing.

Police are asking anyone with information about this operation to contact Sgt. D. Hake at 302-697-4454 ext. 619 or Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333. Tips can also be submitted to the DSP Mobile Crime App, texting DSP to CRIMES (274637), or by visiting the TipSubmit website.
