Federal, state and local authorities said Wednesday they’ve shut down a criminal marijuana growing operation in Henryetta.

A search warrant was issued at 29225 Dustin Road tied to an investigation into criminal marijuana trafficking.

"During this investigation, evidence shows large loads of marijuana being moved off this property and trafficked out of state onto the illicit market," said Mark Woodward, spokesman for the the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics (OBN).

Woodward says 42,000 plants have been seized and 28 workers are being detained and interviewed.

The investigation involves the OBN, FBI, DEA, District 25 Drug Task Force, Creek Nation Lighthorse Police and the Oklahoma City Police Department.

Woodward says arrests are pending as the investigation is ongoing.
