(Pikeville, KY.) The Kentucky State Police Post Nine are asking area residents to help identify the locations and persons 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. State Police are warning landowners to watch for person's 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.
Should you suspect possible illegal activity on your land or find marijuana while hunting or farming, please contact the Kentucky State Police Post Nine at (606) 433-7711, 1-800-DOPE-TIP or fill out the attached tip sheet and send it in to post. All tips and information can be reported and the caller remains anonymous.
