FITZGERALD, GA (WALB) –The Governors task force flew over Ben hill County Thursday looking for Marijuana growing in the fields.

Today they found 27 Marijuana plants growing in the woods, some as high as six feet tall.

Sheriff Bobby McLemore says last year they found Marijuana plants growing in the exact location as they did this year.

But they also got a surprise when they found a 2004 Chevrolet Silverado which was reported stolen out of Worth County.

"If they steal a vehicle and try and hide it in an area that's not accessible from the road very easily and not spotted for a long time, being in a helicopter everything is visible to you," said Sheriff Bobby McLemore.

The sheriff says it has been a couple years since the found marijuana with a helicopter but they did get lucky last week and found ten Marijuana plants 13-feet tall.
