Call for help led to pot bust in North Fork

FRESNO, Calif.

Deputies have seized about eleven-thousand small pot plants at two locations since they received a 9-1-1 call Thursday morning. Someone claiming to have a broken leg placed the call and directed authorities to the area.

When officers arrived, they didn't find anyone with a broken leg, but they did discover quite a bit of marijuana in the early stages of growth in small cups.

Investigators looking for the injured caller -- returned to the area Friday and found another sixteen-hundred pot plants. The caller was never located and no arrests have been made.
