(JEROME COUNTY) – Idaho law enforcement officials have busted another marijuana growing operation, this time in Jerome County. The site, which occupied a portion of the Snake River Canyon, had over 400 plants and was only accessible by boat and a nearly half-mile hike. Officials say the operation had a sophisticated irrigation system, with some plants up to nine feet tall. Investigators have identified suspects in the case, though their names have not been released.
