The Mineral County Sheriff's Office busted a marijuana grow operation located inside a Schurz motel earlier this week.

Deputies served a warrant at the Road Runner Motel on Monday, located at the intersection of U.S. 95 and U.S. 95 Alternate in Schurz. Inside, deputies say they found 100 marijuana plants and say they had to shoot and kill an aggressive dog during the bust.

The Mineral County Sheriff says the suspects were not found, and remain on the loose.

Deputies say the street value of the drugs is between $450,000 - $500,000. Deputies say the investigation remains ongoing.

Schurz Elementary School was locked down during the incident as a precaution.
