Acting on an anonymous tip, Whitehall Borough police officers discovered marijuana seedlings in a large wooded area in the rear of the 4900 block of East Willock Road at around 7:51 a.m. on Wednesday. Whitehall police Chief Donald R. Dolfi said that the plants—one of which stretched to about 2 feet tall—appeared to be there for cultivation and use.
