Drug agents in Tennessee seized 10,000 marijuana plants about 20 miles from the Alabama state line.

Drug Enforcement Agency estimates the value of the plants at $20 million. They said this is the largest seizure to happen in Wayne County.

The majority of the plants were found near Collinwood. They have already been disposed of.

The operation was a joint effort by the Tennessee governor's marijuana task force, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and Wayne County Sheriff's Department.

The sheriff said the crop was unmanned and there were no arrests.
