One Large Crop Of Pot Found
LIPSCOMB, Texas (AP) — Investigators say more than 109,000 marijuana plants have been found growing in the rural Texas Panhandle.
The Drug Enforcement Administration in Dallas on Wednesday confirmed the discovery but declined comment on whether anyone was arrested.
DEA spokesman Tim Davis says the outdoor plot was located several days ago in Lipscomb County. Davis did not say who found the plants or whether the marijuana has been destroyed. He says the plants have been removed and are no longer growing.
Further details weren't immediately released on the investigation involving local and federal authorities.
Lipscomb County is in the far northeast Texas Panhandle and borders Oklahoma.
