RALEIGH — A joint North Carolina-Virginia marijuana eradication operation on Tuesday and Wednesday resulted in the seizure of more than 800 plants in Granville, Vance and Warren counties, according to a press release from the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation.
Two stolen vehicles were recovered as well during the operation.
On the north side of the state line, the Virginia State Police seized 25 plants and 20 guns. Charges are pending against one individual.
North Carolina’s SBI and the Virginia State Police coordinated the multi-agency operation that took place along the border of the two states.
“The partnerships we have at the state and local level and with our partners to the north made this operation successful,” said Lynn Gay, assistant special agent in charge of the SBI’s Capitol District. “No one agency brought more to the table than another. It was a group effort, and everyone’s input helped achieve our goal of putting illegal growers out of business.”
