On Aug. 20, the Newberg-Dundee Police Department seized from two locations 138 marijuana plants grown by unidentified members of the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program.
The 87 plants seized at 1400 North Meridian St. amounted to about 10 pounds of usable marijuana, said Capt. Jeff Kosmicki. Police seized an additional 51 plants at 15675 Yamhill Road in rural Yamhill with the assistance of the Oregon State Police, McMinnville Police Department and Yamhill County Sheriff’s Office.
The two locations were related, Kosmicki said.
The officers left six mature marijuana plants and a pound and a half of marijuana as those are the legal limits under the state program.
The case has been referred to the Yamhill County’s District Attorney office for unlawful manufacturing of marijuana. No arrests were made.
