Thirty-seven defendants arrested in connection to the massive marijuana bust, Operation Gang Green, will be arraigned this afternoon.

The defendants will be charged at 1:30 p.m. and enter pleas before Clark County Superior Court Judge Robert Lewis.

The drug defendants were arrested as a result of the Oct. 13 Operation Gang Green, an investigation by the Clark-Skamania Drug Task Force that netted about 6,800 marijuana plants following raids on 56 locations. About 300 police officers were involved.

The defendants are expected to be tried separately or in groups.
