"BISHOPVILLE, SC (WIS) - Lee County sheriff's deputies discovered over 850 marijuana plants found near Bishopville on Tuesday.
They were found near Timber Creek and King Road. Deputies also found a tent near where the plants were growing, indicating that someone was living in the field and tending to the marijuana at night.
'They've been out there, with fresh footprints, within the last couple of days,' said Sheriff Daniel Simon. 'It's not something that's been here for a long period of time. Within the last week we feel assured that it was well tended to.'"
