Local Man Plants Marijuana in Front Yard Gets Arrested
World Says, Duh!
In a small town in southern Michigan, deputies recently responded to a home around midnight to discuss an “assault” with the resident. However, before said discussion could begin, the observant deputy noticed cannabis plants growing in the resident’s front yard. The quick thinking deputy obtained a search warrant for the home, according to the police report. Several marijuana plants, processed marijuana and one firearm were seized, the deputy said. Charges are being sought for the 52 year-old Michigan man for operating a drug house, felony firearms, manufacturing of marijuana and possession of marijuana. The good news is, nothing further was mentioned about the “assault.”
Neighbors were stunned and shocked by the news. Here’s what a few of them had to say:
“For those of you who don’t know, Michigan is the state that’s shaped like a mitten, and police discussions typically aren’t conducted at midnight.”
“I knew something was going on in that house. The man who lives there always smiles and waves. I knew he had to be high on something.”
“So glad that instead of fighting ‘real crime’ the cops have six squad cars, flashing all their damn lights, and waking my ass up in the middle of the night. What is wrong with you’s guys?”
