SULLIVAN COUNTY, N.Y. -- Two New York City men were arrested on drug charges after a two month long investigation.
Deputies from the Sullivan County Sheriff's office searched a home on Kitz Road in Monguap Valley. During the search, officials say they found more than 300 marijuana plants valued at $120,000.
"It was set up so that they would have harvest coming through the year. Optimally, they look for three or four harvest a year," said Sullivan County Sheriff Michael Schiff.
According to the sheriff, they became aware of the situation after a concerned citizen called the sheriff's office tips line.
"They're not from this area. They were growing the crop here and taking it to New York City, probably for sale," said Schiff.
Enrigue Vasquez, 29, and Henry Sanon, 33, both of Manhattan, were both charged with criminal possession of marijuana.
Sanon is also currently on parole for weapon possession.
They were both arraigned and sent to the Sullivan County Jail without bail.
