Two days after numerous branches of law enforcement swooped in to bust a $10-million marijuana grow at Bandelier National Monument, superintendent Jason Lott said crews are scrutinizing other areas of the park.
“We are actively looking for other grow areas along Bandelier. If there are other areas, we will find them and with the fire, that makes it easy,” Lott said.
“We are sending a clear message that we will be looking for that kind of stuff and we will find you. I don’t want this to be considered a prime place for this kind of activity.”
Lott said 9,200 plants were eradicated from the site and disposed of at an undisclosed location.
