GLENWOOD SPRINGS – The Two Rivers Drug Enforcement Team seized 928 marijuana plants at a grow location east of Cattle Creek Monday.

According to a press release from the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office, the grow operation was up County Road 113 between Glenwood Springs and Carbondale. Most of the plants were four to five feet tall, the release stated, and had an estimated street value of around $2 million.

“From information gathered at the scene, it appears that this grow has been well established for some time,” the release stated.

The Sheriff’s Office was not releasing any specifics on the ongoing investigation, nor would they identify if the grow operation was located on public or private land.

TRIDENT, a multi-jurisdictional task force also seized over 800 marijuana plants near Battlement Mesa in 2008. At the time, that was considered the largest grow operation ever in Garfield County.
