Pipe theft report leads Lincoln police to pot bustJanuary 30, 2013 @ 10:54 am
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say they discovered a budding marijuana-growing operation after residents of a Lincoln house called police to report the theft of marijuana pipes.
The Lincoln Journal Star reports ( http://bit.ly/TBcgDU) that officers were called to the house Saturday morning. Residents had reported that two people, one of them armed with a handgun, forced their way inside the house and took two hookah pipes.
Officers questioning the residents noticed marijuana, paraphernalia and several bottles of fertilizer. They also saw light shining from under a door barred with a padlock and a power cord snaking into the room.
After getting a search warrant, police say they found three marijuana plants, grow lights and other equipment.
Police arrested a 19-year-old man on suspicion of manufacturing marijuana and ticketed his roommates for having marijuana paraphernalia.
