When the officers arrived at the woman’s house responding to the call, the woman, identified by her last name Atchinson, told the officers that thieves had tied her up and stole cash and jewellery.

With her permission the officers entered the house to review the scene of the crime and to their surprise, inside one of the rooms, they found several jars with marijuana plants.

This raised the suspicion of the officers to check the house from top to bottom, until finally in the patio, where they found a controlled environment laboratory for the cultivation of marijuana.
