Another bust on a Texas marijuana growing operation has brought the number of such raids to double digits for 2014 and has seen over 170,000 plants uprooted.

This time, authorities in Navasota uprooted nearly 3,500 cannabis plants recently after receiving a tip. They ranged in height from two to eight feet tall on the 50 acre property.

Authorities say the people responsible might have been living in a nearby wooded area, however no arrests have been made.

It’s the sixth marijuana-growing operation busted in Washington County alone since January 2013.

Last month authorities in east Texas found and uprooted a field with over 100,000 marijuana plants. Soon after, two more fields were found with several thousand plants each.
