Two men in Wood County are facing drug charges after the Sheriff's Department says an under cover investigation yielded more than $125,000 worth of marijuana.

According to a news release, on September 14 officers discovered an outdoor marijuana grow in Babcock. Weapons, drug paraphernalia, and 483 marijuana plants were seized from the home. Charges against the home owner, Rodney Jensen, 56, have been forwarded to the Wood County District Attorney.

Investigators says Jensen's grow led them to another outdoor grow nearby. A press release says Tracy Thomas, 51, had marijuana growing on his property along with harvested marijuana drying in his bedroom. Thomas will also be charged in the case.
