SUGAR LAND, Texas (AP) - Authorities near Houston are searching for a man who left a selfie on a cell phone abandoned at a marijuana farm.

The Houston Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/1lugqir ) that Fort Bend County sheriff’s deputies are searching for Benigno Ramirez of Michoacan, Mexico. Authorities say they found a phone with his picture on a 4-acre farm raided last week.

The farm near Oyster Creek was accessible only by boat. It had as many as 10,000 marijuana plants with an estimated street value of $10 million.

Authorities say they believe Ramirez had a key role in the farm.

Fort Bend County is southwest of Houston.
