HARRIS COUNTY, Texas -- One man has been taken into custody after authorities found more than 150 marijuana plants growing in a home near Cypress Falls High School, the Harris County Precinct 5 Constable's Office said.
Deputy constables made the discovery Tuesday after a concerned citizen tipped off the office.
According to constables, a massive stash of hydroponic weed was found growing inside a two-story home in the Aberdeen Green Community. The house was rigged with a sophisticated irrigation system and expensive lights.
One man has been arrested and charged. It is not yet known if he had any accomplices.
