Detectives in Ada and Canyon County noticed that there were huge amounts of plastic pipes and water emitters being purchased in cash from local distributors. Suspecting production of an illegal substance, investigators planted GPS trackers on the goods and followed the suspects to their marijuana grow operations where they uncovered 6,000 marijuana plants.
Using similar tactics, police were also able to locate another 4,000 marijuana plants in a remote region of Oregon, apparently connected to this particular grow operation. Authorities arrested three men and charged them in connection to serious marijuana grows in both Idaho and Oregon. Police value the marijuana at millions of dollars.
