Bust uncovers 1,500 pounds of marijuana, worth estimated $4.5 million, in Montrose County

A enormous marijuana grow with about 1,500 pounds of plants worth an estimated $4.5 million has been busted on the Western slope over the weekend.

A Montrose County Sheriff’s deputy on Friday serving a warrant for overdue property taxes in the 69300 block of Orion Trail, east saw growing outdoors northeast of the home, according to a news release.

To reach this residence’s front door the deputy walked a few hundred hanging, treating marijuana plants. The deputy contacted Chung Ho at the home, who claimed he wasn’t a part of the marijuana grow. The deputy mentioned Ho for the marijuana after posting papers on the property taxes. The deputy drove into an adjacent property and saw people get out of a running vehicle, with plates, and run there. The vehicle was full of trash bags.
