Texas authorities have removed more than $100,000 marijuana plants, after discovering 29 pot fields northeast of Houston. The first field was found Saturday by a deer hunter. Now, more than a dozen law enforcement agencies are trying to figure out who's responsible for the elaborate illegal operation. Investigators found several camps with tents, generators, food and sophisticated irrigation systems. When game wardens rolled up to one camp on Tuesday, the sheriff's department says to men ran. Texas Department of Corrections AK-9's helped track one of the men. The 16-year-old man was arrested and charged with evading arrest. He also has an I-N-S detainer. Authorities don't believe he was working alone.
