DALLAS (AP) - Dallas school police are sure this was no official
class project.
Last night they found 240 pots in a classroom at the vacant
Wilmer-Hutchins High School and they believe the plants sprouting
in some of those pots are marijuana.
The Dallas Morning News reports a tip led officers to the
suspected marijuana.
A Dallas Independent School District spokesman Jon Dahlander
said 49 of the pots had been seeded and a few plants had sprouted.
Along with the pots, there were lights to help plants grow and
buckets, apparently used to bring in water.
Dahlander said there have been a few break-ins at the boarded-up
school, which the district plans to renovate.
He says security for the campus would be reviewed in light of
the suspicious plants.
