From Kim Minugh:
Lincoln police arrested a 26-year-old man Friday morning after investigators found a marijuana processing plant inside his Lincoln home, according to authorities.
Clinton Hooper, a Lincoln resident, was booked into the Placer County Jail on suspicion of possessing marijuana for sales, possessing concentrated cannabis, being a convicted felon in possession of live ammunition and committing a felony while out on bail, said Lincoln police Lt. David Ibarra.
On Friday morning, a Lincoln police officer responded to Green Ravine Drive and Fielding Lane after neighbors reported the strong odor of marijuana coming from a U-Haul truck parked in the area, Ibarra said.
As the officer began to drive away from the truck, the officer noticed a man walk up to the truck, Ibarra said. The officer confronted the man and learned he was on probation out of Sacramento County for marijuana possession, Ibarra said.
That led police to the man's residence in the 300 block of Falkirk Court, where they found more than 100 pounds of marijuana in various stages of processing, concentrated cannabis, live ammunition, narcotic paraphernalia and more than $11,000 in cash, Ibarra said.
Hopper is being held without bail, according to jail booking records.
