CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - In this bust, police didn't have to go searching.
The operator came to them.
Police said they found 12 garbage bags stuffed with suspected marijuana at a home in the Shannondale area of Jefferson County on Sunday afternoon after a woman decided to "come clean" about growing the drug.
"We don't get this often," said Detective Victor Lupis of the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department.
The woman, who is not being identified, has not been arrested, Lupis said. Police are continuing their investigation of the case, said Lupis, who made the find along with Deputy D.C. Tabler.
The woman first contacted the Fairfax County (Va.) Police Department about the operation, Lupis said.
After authorities determined the house was in Jefferson County, the woman agreed to meet sheriff's department investigators at the West Virginia/Virginia line Sunday about 5 p.m., Lupis said.
