A two month joint counterdrug operation involving the Milton, Ocean View, Dagsboro, Georgetown, Selbyville, Delmar, Natural Resources Police Departments, DSP, DEA, DSP Aviation, Delaware and Maryland National Guard Counterdrug Units apparently resulted in a seizure of 107 marijuana plants on Thursday.
The seized marijuana has an estimated street value of $214,000.
