BULLOCK CO., AL (WSFA) -

Alabama Alcohol Beverage Control Board agents say numerous marijuana plants have been found growing in a rural portion of east Bullock County.

Officials say the plants were discovered after agents were checking an area where the plants had been grown previously. The search, which took place on July 17 in a wooded area along Bullock County Road 18, uncovered 10 plants growing on the edge of the woods. The plants were next to a field that had been cleared recently. 

Agents say they have reason to believe that the dope farmers would return to the area because the field had been used to grow the plants in the past. They had an estimated street value of $2,000 each.

No other information is being released at this time regarding the investigation. If you have any information about this case or any other illegal activity, call the ABC Board Hotline at 1-800-327-7341.

    A deadly virus is threatening the crawfish industry in Southwest Louisiana. It's called white spot syndrome virus and it was first discovered in Thailand, but somehow it made its way to ponds in South Louisiana and specialists are struggling to find the funds to research a solution.  “The catch was increasing and increasing and then it dropped 70% and that's when you saw the dead crawfish floating in the water,” said a crawfish farmer of 34 years, Ian Garbarino.
