Large marijuana cultivation disrupted in east Grand Bahama
A discovery of approximately thirty plots of marijuana fields averaging in size of 50X50 were made during an early afternoon routine patrol in East Grand Bahama on Friday 22nd June, 2012, in the pine forest on north side of Grand Bahama Highway a few miles east of the High Rock Community.

Investigations are continuing by officers from the Drug Enforcement Unit and although no arrest was made at the time of this release, the team is following several leads into this matter.
