Complaints of low water pressure by residents at a mobile home park near Tyler prompted a search by the property owner. He noticed a hose connected to one of the homes and followed it into some woods, where the carefully groomed marijuana plants were growing.

KLTV-TV reports some of the confiscated plants were hanging and drying out Thursday at the Smith County Sheriff's Office.

Sgt. Jim Whithan says the plants, which were discovered Monday, were "properly watered and had been fertilized."

One of two rifles recovered in the woods was reported stolen in Anderson County. So far no arrests.

Tyler is about 95 miles southeast of Dallas.
