Calais, Maine (STL.News) Calais Border Patrol agents located and seized an illegal marijuana grow in South East Maine.

On September 5th, an agent from the Calais Border Patrol Station discovered a suspected marijuana grow while patrolling the area on foot.  The agent immediately requested backup and a K-9 unit. Upon arrival, the K-9 handler conducted an open air sniff.  His K-9 partner alerted to the presence of a trained odor and traced it to the source.

Once the substance tested positive for marijuana, nearly 40 pounds of marijuana plants were seized, an approximate value of $135,000.00.

“As Border Patrol agents, we enforce Federal drug laws, including marijuana.  This was an excellent job done by our Calais agents and their k-9 partner,” Said Acting Patrol Agent in Charge of the Calais Station, James F. Trainor, Jr.
