Officials were led to a marijuana growing house in Littlerock in the Antelope Valley after pulling a car over for a routine traffic inspection, reports ABC Los Angeles.

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.

The also found that the operators of the grow house were stealing electricity.
