Huron County Sheriff's Office deputies seized about 100 marijuana plants Thursday in rural Willard.

"Several members of the road-patrol division responded to an area commonly referred to as "The Muck" which is the wildlife area outside of Willard," Sheriff Dane Howard said.

Howard said the marijuana plants were located in an area he called a "thicket."

This area was discovered off Baseline Road.

No arrests were made as the investigation continues, the sheriff said.

"There were all sizes of plants," Howard said.

"It was a brief investigation," he added. "The deputies reacted quickly to the information provided."

Howard said the wildlife area is owned by the state of Ohio and is mainly used by hikers and sportsmen.
