One Million Dollars In Pot Plants Found In Carteret County

Hundreds of marijuana plants have been discovered in Carteret County. In fact the sheriff says it is one of the largest discovery of pot plants in recent years.

Authorities say a state Highway Patrol helicopter located four plots of marijuana plants in the middle of a pine field off Wetherington Landing Road Wednesday.

Officials say once they reached the plots by foot they uncovered almost 13-hundred marijuana plants, some of them were as tall as six-feet high.

Authorities say if the plants were allowed to fully mature they would have an estimated street value of $1 million.
