Nearly $180,000 worth of pot plants were discovered in Delaware County last week, but no arrests have been made just yet.

According to authorities, Cherokee Nation marshals recovered 120 plants in the Kenwood community last Wednesday, working with a drug task force for the District 27 District Attorney's Office.

"The Cherokee Nation Marshal Service works diligently in our communities on the eradication efforts of marijuana and other illegal drugs," Cherokee Nation Marshal Capt. Danny Tanner said. "Right now it is the peak of marijuana season, and we will continue working our target counties."

The plants were sent to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation lab in Tahlequah and marked for destruction.

The case remains under investigation. No arrests have been made.
