Pot-Growing Operation Discovered in Van Nuys After Officers Smell Weed
A pot-growing operation in Van Nuys may have been felled by a simple refusal to shove a towel under the door: City News Service reports that cops stumbled on the weed-cultivating site by accident this morning after being called to a residence at the 15800 block of Stagg Street and smelling marijuana wafting through the building.
The discovery happened at about 5:15 a.m. Police had been called to the location because an outside door was propped open.
After catching a whiff of the marijuana, officials sent in a bomb squad in case the area was booby-trapped. No word yet on who was running the operation or what authorities found once inside.
