State Police are cracking down on marijuana growing operations in Cabell County.
Troopers said they took about $30,000 of marijuana plant off the streets Thursday.
Troopers used a helicopter to spot the plants on Blue Sulfur Road in Ona.
They then went in on four-wheelers to seize the plants.
Police said they want to compile their evidence before they make an arrest, which they said is expected in the coming days.
Thursday was not the norm on Blue Sulfur Road near Ona.
The people living there said they were shocked to learn of police busting a pot growing operation just up the road.
As Pastor Millard Morrison held church on Thursday evening, he said he was fed up with dope.
"It’s dishearting,” he said. “Ruining everything, but sooner or later they'll get caught."
Troopers said the suspect is cooperating with their investigation.
