LOWVILLE, N.Y. — Police agencies have discovered about 500 marijuana plants in Lewis County during their annual fall harvest, most of them on Tug Hill.

"We started in early September and finished up the last of October," said Dale W. Roberts, senior investigator with the Lewis County Sheriff’s Department.

Had the confiscated plants ' ranging from 3 to 8 feet tall ' been harvested by their illegal growers, the street value of the resulting drug would have been in the neighborhood of $250,000, Mr. Roberts said.
