COPY-Evidence under analysis from huge marijuana site

UNION CITY, Tenn. (AP) - Several law enforcement agencies continue to analyze evidence collected at the site of a multimillion-dollar marijuana operation discovered last month in Obion County.

Authorities declined to comment to the Union City Daily Messenger about the first possible arrests (http://bit.ly/sXaiWz ).

Investigators confiscated a pair of generators from the scene, plus other items from the primitive living quarters at the growing site.

Authorities said they found an estimated 362,000 mature marijuana plants from the jungle-like terrain where the marijuana was being grown, cultivated and dried. The confiscated marijuana has been valued at $434 million.

Officials described the investigation as still very active.
