Approximately 3,000 pot plants weighing 179 pounds were discovered and removed in a joint operation in Dallas, Texas. Shortly afterward, Major Max Geron, a 25-year veteran of the Dallas Police Department, tweeted aerial photos of the confiscated cannabis, asking if anyone was “missing their weed.”
The Aerial Discovery of 3,000 Pot Plants
The Dallas Police helicopter, Air One, discovered the marijuana grow operation in a remote area of Southeast Dallas on Friday, October 13.
The Dallas Narcotics Division—with the assistance of Air One, the Southeast Bike Unit and the Dallas Fire Department Swift Water Team—handled the removal of more than 179 pounds of cannabis plants.
According to Texas officials, approximately 3,000 pot plants were uprooted and are set to be destroyed.
Air One has previously worked on missions looking for missing people, recovering stolen cars, as well as assisting officers on the ground.
Dank Discoveries in Dallas
In 2016, Dallas police uncovered a larger marijuana grow operation in the Mountain Creek area, leading to the discovery (and subsequent removal) of more than 5,000 plants.
Later that year, Texas game wardens discovered a large-scale operation in Menard County, about 150 miles northwest of Austin. Authorities seized about 40,000 marijuana plants worth millions of dollars.
Authorities who discovered the latest marijuana grow site said no suspects have been found.
