Portage County authorities discovered a plentiful marijuana growing operation in some woods in Brimfield Township. DEA agents and the Portage County Task Force couldn't even reach the area without all-terrain vehicles and chain saws. Once they did, they discovered 705 plants — a harvest worth about $788,000 on the street, or enough to keep Peter B. Lewis pacified for a weekend. (Via Ohio.com)
