Cherokee Nation marshals recovered nearly $180,000 worth of marijuana plants in the Kenwood community of Delaware County Wednesday.

Cherokee Nation Marshal Capt. Danny Tanner said the marshals recovered 120 plants with an estimated street value of $1,500 per plant. They worked with the drug task force for the District 27 District Attorney’s Office serving Adair, Cherokee, Sequoyah and Wagoner counties.

“The Cherokee Nation Marshal Service works diligently in our communities on the eradication efforts of marijuana and other illegal drugs,” Tanner said. “Right now it is the peak of marijuana season, and we will continue working our target counties.”

The recovered plants were marked for destruction and sent to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation lab in Tahlequah. No arrests were made and the case remains under investigation.
