By Chrisbert Garcia: More than 1,000 marijuana plants were destroyed in the Toledo District yesterday morning before daylight when Punta Gorda (PG) Police discovered a plantation in Columbia village with plants ranging from 6 inches to 3 feet in height.
Around 4:00 a.m., officers working on information received, traveled to the village located more than 20 miles outside of PG, then uprooted and burned a total of 1,250 plants, which were on the west side of the village, a few miles off its farmers road.
No one was in the area at the time, so police could not make any arrests.
