DASSEL -- Over 1,400 marijuana plants were found inside a home in Dassel.
Meeker County Sheriff Brian Cruze says deputies arrested 37-year-old Boa Huynh Thursday outside a residence in the 500 block of Marcia Street. Huynh is a fugitive with an out of state warrant.
Authorities found information that Huynh was possibly growing marijuana in the home. Police were able to get a search warrant. During the search, officers found 1,433 marijuana plants along with other items used to grow the plants. Officers also arrested 45-year-old Trong Ly of Brooklyn Park at the scene.
Cruze says in his 24-years of being in law enforcement, including 15-years of working in narcotics he has never seen such a sophisticated marijuana growing operation.
