DALLAS,Tex. — Acting on a tipster's call to Grand Prairie police Friday, federal agents went looking for 200 to 300 marijuana plants amid dense thickets along the suburb's border with Dallas.
By Saturday morning, investigators had uncovered 10,451 marijuana plants worth up to $5 million – the biggest drug crop ever found in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, according to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.
Federal agents took a break after pulling up marijuana plants Saturday near Grand Prairie's Reagan Middle School. Some of the plants were only 200 yards from Grand Prairie's Ronald W. Reagan Middle School. Investigators don't know who planted them.
