Oct 13, 2011

HOPKINS COUNTY - An investigation is underway after a huge marijuana farm was found along the Hopkins-Franklin County line.

Investigators say the operation between Sulphur Bluff and Saltillo may have been in place for quite a while. Thousands of plants were collected by officers and placed on trailers.

They were to be taken to a DPS facility in Dallas. Some of the seized drugs were being held at the Hopkins County Sheriff’s office.
