VIROQUA, WI (WTAQ) - Charges are pending against a 56-year-old man who allegedly ran a sophisticated marijuana growing operation at two houses he owns in southwest and northwest Wisconsin.
Vernon County sheriff's deputies said they were tipped off about drug trafficking which involved local high school students. It led officers the man's residence in Stoddard, where they found processed marijuana, guns, and cash -- and to the man's residential property about 200 miles to the north in Hayward, where a pot growing operation was found with over 65 plants.
State and regional offices helped Vernon and Sawyer county sheriff's deputies with the case -- which is still under investigation.
More arrests are possible, as at least two more Wisconsin counties have reportedly been linked.
