Central Oregon authorities say they confiscated 800 pounds of marijuana and 50 pounds of marijuana concentrate, leading to the discovery of illegal pot-producing sites in the region.

Authorities found sites in Sisters, Redmond and La Pine, and that three men were indicted by a grand jury on Wednesday.

Twenty-eight-year-old Andrew I. Pollack and 40-year-old Dusty Michael Jones are charged with unlawful possession, delivery, and manufacturing of marijuana.

Twenty-eight-year-old Shaun Gutta is charged with unlawful possession, delivery and manufacture of marijuana, unlawful possession of more than an ounce of cannabinoid extracts, and frequenting a place where controlled substances are used.

Pollack has been assigned to the public defender’s office, but an attorney isn’t listed in online court records. It’s not clear from online court records if Gutta and Jones have attorneys.
