Arrests made in marijuana bust in Union Township

The Clermont County Sheriff’s Office has announced they have netted one of their largest indoor marijuana busts in the last 15 years with the help of Cincinnati Police Central Vice Control Section, Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation, Drug Abuse Reduction Task Force, and the Clermont County Narcotics Unit.

“We usually have trouble with people growing outside,” Chief Deputy Rick Combs with the CCSO said. “It’s unusual to see such a large indoor operation in Clermont County.”

According to Combs, the investigation had been ongoing for six months when a break came in the form of a traffic stop by a Newton Police Office on Tuesday, May 25.
