Farmer mows down marijuana crops Delaware officials were keeping an eye on

    Any leads Delaware Fish & Wildlife agents had on a pot crop died right along with the plants when a farmer mowed down the crop.

    A release from the state Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control says authorities were watching the Townsend crop of about 20 marijuana plants Sept. 19 when a farmer working the crops harvested the corn the plants were growing between.

    The pot plants were destroyed in the process, and authorities have no leads or suspects regarding who was growing them. Anyone with information about the crop at the Rocks Tract of the Cedar Swamp Wildlife Area is asked to call 302-739-4580.
