Officers with the Southwest Enforcement Team are looking for two Hispanic men that they chased through a large marijuana grow operation in Van Buren County on Saturday. Police seized nearly 15,000 well-tended pot plants in the bust after receiving a tip that the grow operation was on County Road 376 in Covert Township. The two men were armed and were able to outrun police to Interstate 196, where they disappeared. Investigators are asking anyone who may have seen the men be picked up at County Road 376 and I-196 to call SWET at 269-982-8664. In addition to the weed, police found a long-term camp and the guns that were dropped by the suspects as they ran.
