Sugar Land bust nets five acre marijuana field

Sugar Land marijuana field

After months of investigation, authorities raided a five acre marijuana growing operation in Sugar Land near the regional airport.

Two suspects were seen before they ran away. Police say they pointed a pellet gun at them.

Officials say that the operation is worth several millions, but didn’t go into further detail. Some plants were over 14 feet tall.

Several residents in the area spoke with KHOU.

“Helicopters have been flying over since 9 this morning” said Roxie Foremoore, who lives nearby. “That does scare me. It’s Sugar Land, supposed to be safe.”

“It makes me think about where we live differently” said Ashley Wallace, also a neighbor.

“It’s pretty scary. I guess you never know what’s lurking in the woods,” said one resident who didn’t want to be identified.

Officers are still looking for the suspects, who were camping near the operations.

They left everything behind, including a radio still playing music, toiletries, soap, food, clothes and all of their personal belongings. The two also had a makeshift kitchen where they cooked and washed clothes.
