ROCK ISLAND — About 3,000 marijuana plants were discovered on land northeast of Rock Island Wednesday when Douglas County sheriff’s deputies investigated a trespassing complaint.

A rancher who owns land in a remote canyon reported that he had found a camp site, said Douglas County Sheriff Harvey Gjesdal in a press release. Deputies came to the area and found the marijuana plants. Information was not available on the street value of the plants, which were removed and destroyed.
