The vehicle was pulled over yesterday because the driver was talking on a cell phone. The officer who pulled the driver over noticed pot in the car, and was eventually led to a grow house nearby.

It's unclear exactly how the pot in the car led to the grow house, but authorities found thousands of dollars of marijuana there.
