Rocklin house fire leads to pot bust

From Bill Lindleof

Three large marijuana plants were found in a Rocklin home after firefighters extinguished a blaze at the residence Wednesday morning.

During an investigation of the early morning fire in the 2900 block of Twin Creeks Lane, a Rocklin Fire Department Arson investigator found the plants, according to a Police Department news release.

A resident of the home, Joel Klingenberg, 24, told officers he was responsible for the marijuana, police said. Police said it appears that the marijuana was for personal use and not for sale.

A small amount of dried marijuana was allegedly found in Klingenberg's vehicle, police said. Klingenberg was arrested on suspicion of cultivation and transportation of marijuana, the release states.
