(UNDATED) - Springtime is practically here which means it's time to start planting your garden with your favorite plants, including onions, potatoes, peppers, marijuana, tomatoes...marijuana?

All across the Hoosier State, state troopers and other law enforcement agencies are on the lookout for starter marijuana growing operations.

State police say this is the time of year where growers will be placing starter plants in cornfields, along hiking trails and in other remote areas, and are asking Hoosiers to keep an eye out.

The Indiana State Police ask you to call authorities if you see people carrying small plants, jugs of water or fertilizer into remote or otherwise odd areas.

Last year, police say they shut down hundreds of grow operations and taking more than a million dollars worth of weed off the streets.

Additionally, Bedford and Lawrence County police have embarked on a joint drug task force here.

That team effort has already landed one bust in early February, seizing more than $360,000 in drugs, weapons, stolen property and cash, and police say they are still investigating how many tentacles that operation had.
