Officials say it’s the same 150-acre site between Chappell Hill and Washington where deputies in March confiscated about 48,000 plants. The heavily wooded area is about 75 northwest of Houston.
Sheriff Otto Hanak says nobody has been arrested. The sheriff says the latest crop of marijuana was likely planted around the same time as the other plants seized in March.READ MORE: Fourth Stimulus Check: Will You Get Another Relief Payment?
