A drug bust in Logan County, involving large quantities of marijuana, could be part of a larger criminal organization, according to investigators. The bust was made Friday on two properties following a search warrant, where the pot was reportedly being sold illegally.

The Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics said 23 people were detained and questioned from the two properties.  

"At one of the locations, there were eleven people, and at another one there were 12," said Mark Woodward, with the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics.  

However, no arrests have been made yet.

"Some of them may have been workers who didn't understand the complexities of the criminal involvement," Woodward said. "All the way up to those who were orchestrating the black-market deals."

Woodward said of the 23 detained, none have been identified, but they had some language barriers.

"Several of them were Chinese, it's possible all of them were, but they were of Asian descent," Woodward said. "We did have some interpreters that assisted us with the interviews."

The investigation began two months ago after officials said they received information about marijuana being sold illegally.

"It did lead us back to a licensed medical marijuana grow and that is becoming more and more common," Woodward said. "Not just in Oklahoma, but in the United States."

Woodward said the licensed business is called Infinity Leaf Farm. There were around 15 grow houses on the farm and each one had close to a thousand plants in them. Investigators believe this is just one piece of a much larger investigation.

"They're not acting on their own," Woodward said. "There's people orchestrating where the shipments are going, who has involvement in those shipments and more importantly to these organizations moving the money."

News 9 reached out to Infinity Leaf Farm, but they quickly hung up when questioned about their operation.
