WILMINGTON (CBS) – Drug agents seized about 70 marijuana plants Wednesday that were growing on state land, not far from a church.

Someone apparently tipped off police about the drugs.

The pot plants were planted in pots about 500 feet from West Street.

They could not be seen from the street.

Wilmington police and investigators from the Southern Middlesex County Drug Task Force say they conducted surveillance on the area for some time to see if anyone would show up.

They eventually seized the plants along with various growing materials.

Investigators say the nearby church, Grace Chapel, had nothing to do with the drugs.

Right now, they don’t have any suspects.
