Cannabis grow op busted in Grimes County worth $1.4 million
Two men have been arrested in Texas after police found an estimated $1.4 million worth of marijuana growing in a Navasota home.
Officers with the Grimes County/Navasota Anti-Drug Strike Force received a tip that the home was being used to grow and sell cannabis. A search warrant was secured based on surveillance of the property.
More than 400 plants were found along with growing equipment.
“It’s just typical of the times that we have more and more of these operations not only in urban areas, but in metropolitan, suburban and wooded areas,” said Grimes County Sheriff Don Sowell. “People are taking advantage of supply and demand, and it’s something we need to put a crush on.”
