'Selfie' found at marijuana field near Houston of suspect

Benigno Ramirez

A “selfie” left behind at a recently busted marijuana growing operation near Houston has led officials to name a suspect in the case.

The Houston Chronicle reports that Fort Bend County sheriff’s deputies are searching for Benigno Ramirez of Michoacan, Mexico. Authorities say they found a phone with his picture on a 4-acre farm raided last week.

The operation was near the Sugar Land airport and a residential neighborhood, accessible only by water. Authorities say there may have been as many as 10,000 plants, some of which were around 14 feet tall. The value of the operation was estimated at around $10 million.

No one was arrested during the time of the raid.
