Marijuana bust at the Salt Fork Wildlife area
(WOUB) - An eastern Ohio man faces criminal
charges for allegedly growing marijuana on public wildlife land.

The state Division of Wildlife says an investigation was started at the Salt Fork Wildlife Area after a sportsman told authorities he found a campsite in a remote section of the nearly 15,000-acre
wildlife area.

The Guernsey County sheriff's office arrested the suspect Thursday morning.

Officers seized marijuana plants. They did not identify the man in custody.

They say the investigation is continuing, and there may be additional arrests and charges.
