While deputies were out on John Born Road, yesterday they also served an abatement warrant for an out of compliance  marijuana garden and removed 220 mature marijuana plants.

The property was out of compliance because there is no permanent residence on the property and because the number of plants exceeds what’s allowed under the county marijuana ordinance. The owner of the property resides out of the area.
