Police seek help
The Messenger. 05.22.08
Kentucky State Police Post One is asking area residents to help identify locations and people growing marijuana indoors or outdoors.
Police are asking landowners to be aware of possible marijuana growing operations on their land. They should watch for worn trails that lead to roads and trails leading to sources of water. Many growers operate at night. Police are warning landowners to watch for people trespassing at night by listening for the sound of machinery such as four-wheelers, tillers, mowers and chainsaws. They should also be aware of lights coming from areas that are not normally lighted and vehicles parked in odd places.
Anyone who suspects possible illegal activity on their land or finds marijuana while hunting or farming is asked to contact their local law enforcement agency or, in Kentucky, the KSP’s Post One at (270) 856-3721 or toll-free 1-800-DOPE-TIP. All tips and information can be reported anonymously.
