Another one bites the dust

HOUSTON, Texas -- Border Patrol and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) agents spent two days plucking marijuana plants from the ground after discovering two acres of the crop growing on a large plot of land in South Texas. 

The fields were discovered about 45 minutes north of Brownsville just outside of a town called Raymondville, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) stated.

The Associated Press (AP) reported that there was a total of 11,500 plants growing on the grounds, which yielded almost 5 tons of marijuana. According to ICE, the crops had a total street value of about $10 million.
