OLIVE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A mid-Michigan farmer who was harvesting his corn turned up a surprise crop - someone else’s marijuana plants.

The Lansing State Journal reports (https://on.lsj.com/1jOioub ) more than two dozen marijuana plants were found Oct. 19 in Clinton County’s Olive Township, north of Lansing.

Undersheriff Larry Jerue says officers responded and seized the plants. He estimates that the marijuana was worth roughly $48,000. Jerue says this time of year is when marijuana growers “want to bring them in before the farmer harvests the legitimate crop.”

The seizure came just a few days after deputies arrested two people who were drying marijuana plants in a barn in Watertown Township. Jerue says the investigation is continuing, but there’s no indication that the two discoveries are connected.
