Men who report robbery busted for growing pot
Sometimes, it seems, it doesn't pay to report a crime to the police.
Here's one example, out of Florida, where some folks reported a robbery:
When deputies arrived, the people inside the house told them they had been robbed — of between 3 and 5 pounds of pot, according to an arrest report.
During the investigation, authorities said they found 59 marijuana plants growing inside the residence at 11480 Manassas Ave. They also found cultivated marijuana, irrigation equipment, ventilation equipment and other items associated with growing pot.
Five men were arrested and charged with felony cultivation of marijuana, according to reports. You can read the full story on the tampabay.com web site.
