More than 13,000 marijuana plants found near Sealy

sealy grow opDeputies discovered more than 13,000 marijuana plants at a growing operation just northeast of Sealy last week in Austin County.

The crop is estimated to be worth $1.5 million.

According to the Austin County Sheriff’s Office, the plants were found near the intersection of Grubbs Road and Steck Bottom Road after they received a tip. Mill Creek was used for irrigation.

A camp was found upon arrival but it was deserted. No arrests have been made.

In growing operations alone, officers have found more than 40,000 cannabis plants across the state of Texas during the month of August, likely a fraction of grow operations. Often times the operations are manned by drug cartels.

**Edit** We originally reported 1,000 plants in error.
