100K Marijuana Plants Found - Removed In Texas

-
Texas authorities have removed more than 100,000 marijuana plants -- after discovering 29 pot fields northeast of Houston.

The first field was found Saturday by a deer hunter.

Now, more than a dozen law enforcement agencies are trying to figure out who's responsible for the elaborate illegal operation.

Investigators found several camps with tents, generators, food and sophisticated irrigation systems.

When game wardens rolled up to one camp on Tuesday, the sheriff's department says two men ran.

Texas Department of Corrections K-9's helped track one of the men.

The 26-year-old man was arrested and charged with evading arrest.

He also has an INS detainer.

Authorities don't believe he was working alone.
