WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ An estimated $300,000 worth of high-grade marijuana has been recovered from a home in southeast Wichita.

The Wichita Eagle reports that the seizure happened last month after a real estate agent used a cellphone to photograph the drugs. After seeing the pictures on her real estate agent's phone, the owner of the home contacted police Aug. 30.

Sgt. Bruce Watts said Saturday that the woman told officers that her husband had given a key to the new tenant before the scheduled Sept. 1 move-in date.

A search of the home yielded 120 pounds of marijuana that had been grown indoors with hydroponic equipment

The man who rented the house had a prior conviction for illegally entering the U.S. Immigration officials took custody of him while prosecutors consider possible charges.
