Det. Merl Reed of the Waldo County Sheriff's Office (l) and Trooper Elisha Fowlie of the Maine State Police harvested these six-foot-tall marijuana plants Tuesday morning in Frankfort, Maine. The 19 plants had been growing deep in the woods, far away from a road or a house, and were reported by someone who came across them, said Lt. Jason Trundy of the sheriff's office. "There's no way to link them to anybody," he said. Police likely will take the marijuana to be burned at the PERC incinerator in Orrington.
