NAVARRO COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

An investigation by the Navarro County Sheriff’s Office turned up a massive marijuana-growing operation with thousands of plants in three separate fields.

According to a post on the Navarro County Office of Emergency Management page, deputies from the NCSO Narcotics Division and the NCSO SWAT team are at the scene off of SW 0030 near Angus. They are also receiving aerial support from a Texas Department of Public Safety helicopter.

“We were alerted to suspicious activity in this area, prompting an aerial surveillance from our drone operations unit,” the Facebook post stated. “This led to locating the illegal marijuana growing operation.”

Another post stated that law enforcement officers are currently processing the scene for evidence.

“Avoid this area for the time being,” the second Facebook post stated.
