Marijuana plants grown in field near Walmart

Police are trying to figure out who grew about 30 marijuana plants in a field near a Walmart store. Police said it appears the plants, which were on private property, were well cared for; some had stakes holding them up and there was fertilizer around the base of the plants. Police decided last week to destroy the plants after more people in the community became aware of them. (AP)
