An aerial drug bust led authorities in Virginia to more than 700 marijuana plants.

Authorities in Virginia say more arrests are pending after aerial drug busts led to the confiscation of more than 700 marijuana plants.

The busts, in Westmoreland County by the Tri-County Task Force were conducted using a National Guard helicopter.

Investigators say the street value of all the plants seized, amounts to nearly $2 million. In one case, about 365 marijuana plants were found growing near Montross Middle School during the aerial search.

Donald Henderson, 54, of Montross is under arrest and charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute within 1,000 feet of a school zone and possession of marijuana with intent to manufacture.

He's being held at Northern Neck Regional Jail without bond.
