CORTLAND, N.Y. — A sweep of several suspected marijuana grow sites in Cortland County netted local authorities 130 marijuana plants this week, according to a Friday news release from the sheriff's office.
On Wednesday, police combed five different areas of the county — including at least one land parcel in the town of Homer — to locate marijuana grow sites that had previously been reported to local police agencies.
