CAMDEN, Del.– Delaware State Police say they have launched an investigation into a large marijuana grow operation west of Camden after troopers received an anonymous tip about the location of the plants.

Troopers responded to a wooded area east of Almshouse Road and south of Westville Road around 5:45 p.m. Monday. There they discovered 855 marijuana plants weighing approximately 380 pounds growing in an area where trees had been cut and cleared, according to officials.

Police said the unknown suspects had set up an irrigation system that utilized a gas-powered generator connected to a pump in order to draw water from a nearby stream. Troopers also found tools such as shovels, hoes, a machete, and a pickaxe along with two tents, sleeping bags and several articles of men’s clothing.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Sgt. D. Hake at (302) 697-4454, ext. 619.
