Officials in Obion County believe growers of an elaborate, multimillion-dollar marijuana crop had completed up to three harvests and hauled it from the site. The crop was discovered last week on a 10-acre site in a heavily wooded hillside west of Hornbeak. No one has been arrested.
Seized were an estimated 362,000 marijuana plants with a street value of about $434 million, the Union City Daily Messenger reported.
The site included barracks, underground tunnels, showers, generators, a kitchen, irrigation system and lights. Warm food was found in the kitchen when the operation was discovered. The marijuana plants were destroyed by fire after being removed from the site in dump trucks.
