Ashland County authorities are warning residents not to pick up any hitchhikers as they continue to search for four suspects involved in a marijuana growing operation in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest.

Ashland County Sheriff Mick Brennan says that nearly 10,000 marijuana plants were eradicated in the bust and had an estimated street value of $1 million.

Brennan says the raid was the biggest drug bust of its kind in the county.

One man was arrested at the scene in a remote part of the 1.5-million-acre forest, 25 miles northwest of Park Falls.
