Hundreds of marijuana plants found in the Shoals

Hundreds of marijuana plants found in the Shoals

Good Morning!

Here's what we're working on in the WAFF newsroom:

Drug agents in the Shoals have seized more than 300 marijuana plants.  We have video you'll see only on WAFF 48 News.  Agents say a tip led them to the Cloverdale area, where they located the plants by air.

Investigators say 311 marijuana plants were seized from four different plots, and that the plants range from two to seven feet tall.

Another story we're working on is out of Madison County.

Sheriff's Deputies will soon have a new tool for extra protection. The Madison County Commission approved the Sheriff Department's request for body cameras.  The department plans to get 90 of them.

The cameras will be much more useful than dashboard cameras because they can go with the deputies where ever they go.

We'll have much more on this story beginning at 5A.M..

Stop in and join us before you head out for your day.
