Investigators say 32 plants were found last Wednesday in the woods off Jack Henderson Road in Fargo, which is valued at $144,000, according to Investigator John Marion, with the Echols County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies say the Governor's Task Force requested a helicopter search the county, after coordinates revealed that marijuana plants may be in the area.

The pot plants were burned by investigators and they have no suspects in custody yet.

The South Georgia Drug Task Force also assisted with the case.
