The Kalamazoo Gazette is reporting a large marijuana bust in Cass County in the wee hours of Sunday morning. The circumstances leading to this large drug bust are what makes me smile. A 60 year old resident of Calvin Township called the sheriff's department to report a home invasion. The armed suspects had bound her hands and feet while pointing a gun at her. The woman's 63 year old boyfriend was found by deputies in a similar fashion out in the barn.
During the course of searching for the suspects a large marijuana growing operation was discovered in another building on the property.
Police found more than 500 growing marijuana plants, a large amount of processed marijuana, a â€œhighly technicalâ€ electronic lighting and heating system, and loaded weapons.
The suspects who tied the couple up made off with "valuable items" and cash. Any guesses as to what the "valuable items" were? Note to processors, sellers, and growers of marijuana:
If someone breaks into your home and steals "valuable items" and cash or anything for that matter - remember to weigh the consequences of calling that in to the police.
They call that - police work made easy. :)
