Search continues for "Godfather Of Grass"

A crew from a national TV show is in the Bluegrass, trying to help investigators track down a man some call the "Godfather of Grass."

Johnny Boone has been on the run for months.

He was originally arrested for drug charges in the 1980's. Investigators say he was a high-ranking member of the so-called "Cornbread Mafia."

He served time, but now, he's wanted again, because he allegedly grew thousands of marijuana plants on his Washington County farm.

"America's Most Wanted" will feature him on an upcoming episode.

There's a $10,000 reward for information leading to Boone's capture.
