Sheriff: Man arrested in pot plantation case

ESTANCIA (AP) — A man wanted in the case of a huge marijuana plantation that a couple of hunters stumbled upon in the Manzano Mountains is now in custody, authorities said.
KRQE-TV reports that Torrance County Sheriff’s Department said this week that U.S. marshals recently arrested Joseph Hazle in Texas. He will soon be extradited back to New Mexico to face charges for the illegal plants on his property.
In September, two hunters told deputies that they stumbled upon the plantation and four men started shooting at them. The men escaped before authorities arrived on the scene, police said.
