Six new suspects have been named in the robbery of a licensed Wimer pot farm in which thieves attacked a grower and fled with more than $300,000 worth of marijuana in a U-Haul-type rented truck.
The Jackson County District Attorney’s Office is in the process of getting warrants for the suspects, who are believed to be from out of state, said Deputy District Attorney Marco Boccato.
“It’s a concern for law enforcement and we want to treat this seriously,” he said. “We don’t want people to believe they can come to Oregon around harvest time and make out like bandits. We want to make sure we prosecute them as aggressively as possible.”
