Huffington Post 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 that officers were called to the house Saturday morning. Residents had reported that two people, one of them armed with a handgun, forced their way inside the house 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.
Hey stoners, as a general rule of thumb, no matter what happens, you want to keep the cops out of your business.
I know you are stoned and upset that someone stole your favorite hookah at gunpoint, dude, but think twice before you call the police. You have weed everywhere, you are running a grow operation, you were targeted for a reason. The thieves did not think you would be dumb enough to call the cops, because you would be alerting them of all your other illegal activities, they probably even said when the discussed the crime “what’s he gonna do, call the cops?”
Well you did, because you are an idiot, and now your whole operation is shot to shit. You didn’t think to clean up the place and maybe hide the plants before bringing law enforcement into this equation and crying that “they stole my favorite hookah, man…it was such a buzzkill!”
