Wild marijuana plants removed from Lapham Peak
Delafield police eradicated 73 wild marijuana plants, totaling 8.5 pounds, on Sept. 20 that were growing at Lapham Peak State Park and a neighboring property.
The plants ranged from 2 feet to more than 6 feet tall.
According to the police report, this is a familiar site for these plants to grow; an officer previously found marijuana plants there in 2004 and 2005.
While on patrol two weeks ago, the officer found 10 to 15 marijuana plants within the Lapham Peak State Park property.
As he approached the property line, he saw several marijuana plants growing on the property. The homeowner told the officer that she is aware of the plants and said she makes an effort to pull the plants and burn them to eradicate them. However, she said they continue to grow and return on the property.
The officer removed 60 additional plants, some of which were more than 6 feet tall.
