FAIRLAND, Okla. — Oklahoma state narcotics agents say they shut down an illegal marijuana farm that may have illegal sales tied to Missouri.
The marijuana farm growing license was obtained fraudulently, said Mark Woodward, Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics spokesman.
The investigation is ongoing, and more arrests are expected, he said.
“We believe there are illegal sale ties into southwest Missouri,” Woodward said.
The suspected illegal operation was located about two miles north of Fairland on OK-125. Agents, along with Ottawa County Sheriff’s deputies and Miami Police Department officers reportedly seized 26,000 marijuana plants and 900 pounds of processed marijuana, Woodward said.
Woodward said one man is in custody. Authorities are not releasing his name at this time, he said.
