Chicago police find about 1,000 pot plants in city
CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago police are busy chopping down 6- to 8-foot tall marijuana plants that they found growing on a chunk of land the size of two football fields on the city's far South Side.
Officers on routine patrol in a police helicopter spotted the crop Tuesday under a canopy of trees about 3 miles from their hangar.
Police said Wednesday that the 1,000 or so plants had been days or weeks from being harvested. Once packaged, the crop could have been worth as much as $10 million.
