Yakima, WASH--More new developments from the Cowiche Canyon Fire. This one led to a huge drug bust.
Firefighters were at a home on Carvo Road Sunday Night evacuating the area when they noticed something wasn't quite right. This is according to the head of the L.E.A.D. Task Force, a multi-agency drug enforcement team. He told KNDO that last night at around 7 they responded to the home. They found an indoor pot growing operation. He described the plants as very large; one and a half to 2 pounds each. There were about 2-thousand of them, worth round $9 million dollars total. Agents removed the plants from the house.
The head of the task force said when agents entered the house it was vacant. No suspects are in custody.
