What? Me, Superstitious? It Was the Broad's Fault

Marijuana Grow Room

AP 3-25-09

A broken mirror brought a man bad luck on Tuesday. Police said a woman called 911 to report she had been cut by a mirror that had fallen on her. When police and firefighters responded they also found a sophisticated marijuana growing operation, including 130 plants growing in a mylar-wrapped room, with lamps and a ventilation system.

A resident of the duplex, a 46-year-old man, was charged with felony level drug manufacturing. He refused to cooperate with the arresting officer, claiming a constitutional right to grow weed.

The woman was treated at the scene but charged only with stupidity, which is not a misdemeanor. She was released on her own recognizance.

The man was arrested and is being held on $20,000 cash bail. He requested that the woman who called 911 not be permitted to visit him.

Further arrests are expected.
