Navarro County Deputies find thousands of marijuana plants

CORSICANA, Texas (AP) — Law officers have located thousands of marijuana plants at a pot farm hidden in a wooded area of North Texas.

The Navarro County Sheriff’s Office says some of the plants discovered Saturday were flourishing at a height of 10 feet. Officers acting on a tip located the illegal crop.

Sheriff Elmer Tanner says investigators are trying to determine who tended the site in northeast Navarro County. Hoses and other watering mechanisms were at the scene.

Investigators say the property owner was not aware of the marijuana operation that yielded plants with a street value of several hundred thousand dollars.

Authorities didn’t immediately provide specifics on the location of the marijuana plot or how many plants were found and face eradication.
