Authorities in Menard County have confiscated an estimated 35,000 marijuana plants holding a street value of $13 Million Dollars.

The bust was made yesterday after officers and Texas game wardens worked together to uncover the plant farm.

It's likely the farm was used to grow and ship the drug across the United States, which is common for large-scale plant farms.

The farm was discovered when game wardens were doing routine helicopter patrols in the county.
