Marijuana Grow House:

On January 15th at 2:00 pm, officers responded to a call of a residence being used to grow marijuana on the unit block of Bitting.

On entering, she discovered numerous marijuana plants in the living room. She immediately feared for the safety of the elderly tenant and was afraid that an illegal narcotics operation was being run by someone other than the tenant from the home. The owner of the property responded to the scene and allowed the officers to conduct a well being check of the unit. The officers did not find anyone inside, but located over 160 marijuana plants in various stages of maturity in the apartment surrounded by lighting, ventilation and moisturizing devices. All of the plants and hydroponic equipment was seized and booked. An investigation is ongoing. (SFPD Case No. 150041485)
