PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) - Authorities in Pueblo County have found another suspected illegal marijuana grow operated by people who recently moved to Colorado.

The sheriff’s office announced Tuesday that deputies discovered the grow in a Pueblo West home after getting a tip.

They believe the two Russian immigrants who recently moved from New York were growing pot to ship back there.

The Pueblo Chieftain ( ) reports the two said they were growing the marijuana for medical use but didn’t have any documents to support that.

They haven’t been arrested but prosecutors are deciding whether to file criminal charges against them.

This is the eighth suspected illegal marijuana grow discovered in the county since March 30. All involve people who recently moved to the state.
