HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Harris County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a house at the Lake Cypress Estates in northwest Harris County on Wednesday after receiving a call about a fire and possible shots fired.

After answering the distress call, they then discovered over 1,000 marijuana plants inside with a street value of over $4 million.

“Contrary to the initial call, there was no fire but when deputies entered the house located on Lindsay to check on any possible victims, they instead discovered over 1,000 marijuana plants throughout the house, including the garage,” added officials with the HCSO.

According to investigators, the house was being rented.

Although there were no arrests made, authorities with the HCSO continue their investigation into the discovery of the marijuana, alongside the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area task force, “…a multi-agency task force whose aim is the disruption and dismantling of narcotic, money laundering and drug gang organizations,”  added authorities.

There was no other information released at the time of this report.
