Sheriff's Deputies in Palmdale on patrol got a whiff of marijuana yesterday evening and in a good moment of Sherlock Holmes, followed the smell to a house. What did they find? About 400 plants, occupying 70% of the home, with lighting, watering and ventilation systems, found the Daily News. On man was detained immediately.
