Marijuana plants regrow after bust
Deputies with Willacy County Sheriff’s Department made a return trip to a rural area where they had busted a marijuana growing operation earlier this year.
They say that seeds likely fell off of the plants they had confiscated before, and cannabis plants had begun to grow again.
A total of 16 plants were hauled away this time from an area near Rio Grande Valley. Earlier this year around 11,000 plants were found.
Miguel Echevarria-Zuniga, who is accused of running the previous growing operation, is set for trial on January 8.
