A massive amount of marijuana was found in a ditch earlier this week near Rochester. 

How much? About 112 pounds of marijuana, according to the Olmsted County Sheriff's Office, which says it found the pot on Monday in a ditch off a rural road in southwest Olmsted County. 

The sheriff's office isn't saying who tipped them on the discovery or exactly where it was located, but the marijuana was packed into three totes and two large garbage bags – and it was sealed in 112 separate one-pound bags. 

"We estimate the value of the MJ, due to its high quality, to be approximately $345,000," the sheriff's office says. 

The case is still under investigation and no further details are available.
