Sacto 9-1-1
March 5, 2011
Pot site found to be legal, but wiring questioned

By Carlos Alcala

Sacramento fire crews putting out a fire in one unit of a southeast neighborhood duplex discovered marijuana growing in the second unit.

Police responded to the 6400 block of Cougar Drive shortly before 1 p.m. Friday to investigate and were there when the unit's occupant arrived, the Sacramento Police Department activity log shows.

The occupants, however, provided proper paperwork for marijuana cultivation, police reported.

Instead of arresting the growers, officers left and notified code enforcement to look into what they believed to be improper wiring used to supply power.
