PRESS RELEASE

 

On Thursday, September 20, 2018, at 8:00 a.m., the Austin County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a possible marijuana grow field located in Cat Spring, Texas.  Officers searched the area and found approximately 800 to 1,000 marijuana plants.  Some plants were still growing and others were already cut and placed on racks to dry. 

Deputies also found a small generator, electric water pump, electric cords, small black plastic water lines, two small tents and one canopy.

All plants and equipment were removed by the Sheriff’s Office.  Officers destroyed all the plants, tents and the canopy. 

The equipment was impounded by the Sheriff’s Office and placed in secure storage located at 417 N. Chesley, Bellville, Texas.

Officers from the Bellville Police Department, Sealy Police Department, Wallis Police Department and Constable Pct. 2 assisted in the operation.

This marijuana grow was on private property, very heavily wooded, never traveled and totally unknown by the property owner.
