Last week, federal officials discovered a major marijuana grow operation in the White River National Forest south of Carbondale and made one arrest.

Aspen Public Radio’s Elizabeth Stewart-Severy talked with forest supervisor Scott Fitzwilliams about how the agency deals with operations like this.

The investigation is ongoing.
