Lincoln user learns not to call Police if you are growing marijuana

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ Authorities say they discovered a budding
marijuana-growing operation after residents of a Lincoln house called police to report the theft of marijuana pipes.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (http://bit.ly/TBcgDU) that officers were called to the house Saturday morning by residents who reported that two people, one of them armed with a handgun, forced their way inside and took two hookah
pipes.

Officers questioning the residents noticed marijuana, paraphernalia and several bottles of fertilizer. They also saw light shining from under a door barred with a padlock and a power cord snaking into the room.

After getting a search warrant, police say they found three marijuana plants, grow lights and other equipment.

Police arrested a 19-year-old man on suspicion of manufacturing marijuana and ticketed his roommates for having marijuana paraphernalia.
