JELLICO - Law enforcement officers today are removing marijuana plants from a remote area in Campbell County in what is expected to be the largest seizure ever in the state.

"This find is expected to be the largest amount of marijuana ever seized in the state of Tennessee, outnumbering the Cocke County, Tenn., bust last year of more than 350,000 plants," states a release from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

TBI spokeswoman Kristin Helm said the discovery was made Wednesday during a routine fly-over by members of the Governor's Task Force on Marijuana Eradication.
