During a local and state-wide marijuana sting last week, authorities seized 337 plants and arrested three people, officials said.
Led by the Governor’s Task Force on Marijuana Eradication, agents also found an indoor marijuana-growing operation, said Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson.

Once the helicopter sees the plants, police attempt to make arrests from the ground.
