Michigan State Police are searching for the suspects tied to a large grow operation in an armed camp in Covert Township.
On 07/29/2014 Southwest Enforcement Team received a tip on a marijuana grow in Covert Twp, Van Buren County. The ensuing investigations lead officers to an armed camp in a secluded area of the Township. Officers observed two, armed, Hispanic males, tending to a very large outdoor marijuana grow on public lands. When officers made contact two suspects fled into the heavy underbrush. Police K-9 units tracked the individuals through dense underbrush and woods for several miles to a location off of County Rd 376 where they believe they may have been transported out of the area by accomplices. Officers secured the marijuana grow and found 14,860 well-tended marijuana plants, a long term encampment and long guns dropped by the fleeing suspects.
Authorities are requesting that anyone who may have seen someone being picked up from County Rd 376 at 196 area of Van Buren County on 08-02-2014 to contact SWET at 269-982-8664 and leave a message.

Something You Might Not Know About Me: I've been married to my wife Susan for over 24 years. She is a now runs her own business writing grants for non-profits in Michigan. My youngest son, Ben (19), had major brain surgery for seizures in Aug '05. He is completely recovered and is a sophomore at GVSU! My other son, Harry, is 21 wants to be a Naturalist/Vet goes to MCC.
My big life changing experience was a motorcycle accident during the Roofsit in Sept '06. It was humbling to have so many listeners praying for me during my 6 operations. I was off the air for 6 weeks and in a wheelchair for about 5-6 months. Since then I have experienced complete kidney failure and have been on dialysis for 2 years. Spring of 2010 I organized TEAM CONRAD for the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan. Our 1st Kidney Walks did over 100K-- WOW! I was blessed in Jan 2011 with a kidney transplant from listener/donor Kristin O'Leary from Grandville. I have so much to be thankful for... but especially for your thoughts & prayers.
