Springfield police are looking for the people responsible for planting and maintaining more than 100 marijuana plants seized by police from a wooded area.

Det. Gus Lolakis said the plants were found last week in wooded areas on Springfield Road and East South Range Road.

The Mahoning County Drug Task Force joined township police Monday when about 60 plants were found. On Friday, a police helicopter was able to find about 40 more plants.

Friday authorities found plants in two different areas on East South Range Road.

The state Bureau of Criminal Investigation also assisted on Friday.

Lolakis said arrests and charges are pending.
