Blaine County: Not Holding


Ah, harvest time. The aroma of autumn's bounty fills the air, and underpaid workers can be seen pulling plants up by the roots. This year in Carey, however, the underpaid workers are police officers, after a pair of hunters let them know about a 2,000-plant marijuana grove they'd happened across. Eduardo Mariscal and Leobardo Vega, both 31, are in Blaine County Jail on felony drug trafficking charges. Police confiscated and burned the illicit herb.
