Deputies with the Boyle County Sheriff's Office seized several hundred marijuana plants Saturday that were cultivated indoors and outdoors near the Parksville and Forkland communities.

The sheriff's office received a tip about the plants and were assisted by Kentucky State Police and a federal Drug Enforcement Administration agent.

A state police helicopter found more plants growing on a hillside at a separate location. Parksville and Forkland are southwest of Danville.
