Helicopter fly-overs led by the sheriff’s office last week uncovered six marijuana growing locations — three at homes and three in wooded areas — where officers seized more than 200 pot plants.
Three suspects have been charged with growing marijuana, which is a third degree felony, after fly-overs on August 8 and 10. They are David Henry Bradley, 53, of Glen St. Mary, Nathan Eubanks Perret, 57, of Sanderson and Cornelius Ruise Jr., 43, also of Glen St. Mary.
The fly-overs followed a similar operation last month, when police found 65 additional plants at the residence of Thomas Elgin Fish, 52, on July 14. He faces the same charge.
The fly-overs were conducted with assistance from the Drug Enforcement Administration, Florida Department of Agriculture, Florida National Guard and Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission.
Both operations netted at total of 329 pot plants.
