Over 4,000 Marijuana Plants Seized in Kittitas County

ELLENSBURG, Wash - Kittitas County Sheriff's Office seized 4,263 mature marijuana plants in Coleman Canyon.  Just before dawn on Tuesday, 20 sheriff personnel, on a tip from a Fish and Wildlife Department Agent, went into the area checking for suspects, none were there.  Once the harvest team was allowed in they found over $6,000,000 worth of marijuana.  DEA helicopters were used to lift the plants out of the area.  

"This is the biggest grow I can remember for Kittitas County," said Gene Dana, Kittitas County Sheriff.

The alledged grower was arrested in Mattawa by the Grant County Sheriff's Office who had a search warrant for the suspect.
