WOODLAND PARK, Colo. — About 18,300 marijuana plants were eradicated from an illegal marijuana grow in the Pike National Forest near Woodland Park Thursday. Authorities also confiscated about 2,000 pounds worth of growing equipment and other items.

The five-acre grow site was found in the forest about 6.5 miles from Woodland Park. In addition to the plants, authorities found irrigation pipe, camping gear, tarps, trash, chemicals to deter wildlife, and several 50-pound bags of fertilizer at the site.

No one has been arrested for the grow. Anyone with information that could help the investigation is asked to call U.S. Forest Service Law Enforcement at 303-275-5266.
