EDDINGTON — The Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant at a residence on Clewleyville Road Wednesday morning, uncovering an illegal marijuana-growing operation believed to be linked to an organized Chinese group.

The raid, which took place at about 9 a.m., was part of an ongoing investigation into the group’s activities.

Although no arrests were made, authorities did confiscate evidence from the property.

Sheriff Troy Morton emphasized that the operation was carried out with sufficient resources to ensure public safety.

The Sheriff’s Office was assisted by Homeland Security Investigations in the operation.

“These illegal operations are not just a violation of the law, but they also pose serious risks to our communities,” Morton said. “We will continue to work diligently to expose and dismantle these dangerous activities.”

The investigation into the marijuana-growing operation is ongoing, and the Sheriff’s Office has stated that no additional information will be released at this time.

Anyone with information related to this case is encouraged to contact the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office at 207-974-4585.
