McVille, ND bust nets 75 marijuana plants

McVille, N.D. — Authorities have seized about 75 marijuana plants in a raid of two homes in the northwest North Dakota town of McVille.

Nelson County Sheriff Kelly Janke (JANG'-kee) says the pot was being grown in one home and being sold in the other. Some of the plants were as tall as 6 feet.

Three people were arrested after state and local officers entered the homes with guns drawn early Wednesday while the residents were sleeping.

McVille is a small town with a population of about 400. Janke says more people could be charged as the months-long investigation continues.
