Lexington County authorities want to know who was growing pot plants in the woods in Chapin.
The seven harvest-ready marijuana plants were found Sept. 19 following a tip, the sheriffs department said in a press release.
Ranging in size from five to seven feet tall, the plants were in black planting containers in the woods behind an unoccupied house on Wessinger Road. Authorities estimated the street value of the marijuana at about $7,000.
Lexington County Sheriff James Metts said there was no evidence that the homeowner knew the plants were being grown on the property.
