(LAPORTE) - Authorities are investigating who is responsible for growing $120,000 worth of marijuana that was found growing in a farm field in northern Indiana.

The plants were destroyed, police said.

Authorities said the marijuana find was the result of tips from the public and surveillance of the area.
