More than 109,000 marijuana plants have been seized by authorities in Lipscomb County, located near the Oklahoma border in the northeast Texas Panhandle.
The initial investigation began on Friday, June 5 by local, state and federal authorities. The confiscation of the plants was completed the following Monday, but as of June 10 there had been no confirmed arrests by the Dallas Drug Enforcement Administration.
The farm featured a number of underground power generators, as well as complicated irrigation systems. It was initially discovered by a local deer hunter and being described as the largest bust in Texas state history.
A 2014 Polk County bust, which included the seizure of 100,197 plants among 29 fields with an estimated value of $175 million, was previously the largest in state history.
Tim Davis, the spokesman for the DEA, said that the operation had been discovered a few days ago, but would not comment on whether all the plants had been destroyed. He did confirm that the plants have been removed from the area and are no longer growing.
