JOHNSON COUNTY, Ky. (WSAZ) -- An anonymous tip led Johnson County Sheriff's Deputies to find nearly $20,000 worth of marijuana.

Sheriff Dwayne Price says they made the bust Monday.

They flew over some land near US 460 and found what appeared to be marijuana. When ground crews got on scene, they found several tall plants.

Price says there were seven plants on the property, about five feet tall, and worth $2000-$4000 each.

Deputies also searched the home on the property and found more marijuana.

No names have been released.

Price says they plan to turn this case over to the Johnson County Grand Jury.
