Large marijuana grow operation in Navarro County, Texas

NAVARRO COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) — A tip about suspicious activity in a field about 40 miles northeast of Waco led SWAT and narcotics officers to a massive marijuana growing operation.

In photos posted to the Navarro County Office of Emergency Management Facebook page Tuesday morning, row after row of plants are seen on a hillside. 

Authorities said the operation was on a road listed as SW 0030, a few miles south of Corsicana, Texas.

Thousands of plants in various stages of growth in three different fields were found by the sheriff’s office.

Officers are going through the operation to collect evidence.
