CEDAR CITY — About 2,000 mature marijuana plants were found near Cedar City, Monday afternoon, in Right-Hand Canyon, officials said.

The Iron County Sheriff’s Office said the farm was a highly sophisticated operation set up by a Mexican Drug Cartel. No one was in the area during the raid so no arrests were made.

The DEA is looking for those responsible.
