A warning from law enforcement today for people who spent a lot of time in the great outdoors; especially in remote areas, watch out for gardens being tended by drug criminals. The Central Oregon Drug Enforcement Team (CODE) says heavily armed drug criminals are out tending their marijuana gardens this time of year. And it can be very dangerous for the unassuming hikers who stumbled onto a garden. Ken Mannix is with the CODE Team: “There's been a significant increase in outdoor marijuana grows, not just in Central Oregon, but also in the entire State, I think its because its very lucrative.” In a recent bust, police destroyed a garden worth about $4 million.  It was on private land in Wheeler County and a traveler stumbled onto it and alerted authorities.
