BOWLING GREEN, KY (WSMV) -

Kentucky State Police arrested three men after a large drug bust in Glasgow, KY.

Officers had a tip that there was drug activity in a barn in a rural area on Tompkinsville Road.

Police ordered a warrant, and entered the property.

They found a large, elaborate indoor marijuana farm, housing about 1,300 marijuana plants.

The street value of the plants are estimated to be around $2.6 million.

Officers confiscated more than $21,000 in cash, along with many pieces of equipment used to grow the marijuana.

Police found chemicals, computerized equipment and two firearms on the property.

They also found two pickup trucks, one ATV, one Kubota tractor, one box trailer, two zero turn mowers and several outdoor power equipment tools.

Officers arrested Dallas Norris, 69, Roger Goheen, 39, and John Landrum, 43.

The men were all charged with cultivating in marijuana, which is a charge for growing five plants or more.

The suspects were also charged with complicity, which means they were all able to stop the crime, but didn't.

In addition, Norris was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, and being a persistent felony offender, first-degree.

All three were sent to the Barren County Jail.

Trooper Daniel White is the case officer, and the investigation is ongoing.
