Yesterday at approximately 1:30 p.m., police officers responding to a domestic disturbance stumbled onto a secret indoor pot farm and recovered "approximately 970 plants (Mature and Starter) and 79 pieces of equipment" estimated at approximately $985,800.00, according to the Seattle Police Department blotter.
When patrol officers arrived at the house located on the 6000 block of South Redwing Street, they spotted one lone individual in the front yard who fled when given orders to stop. The house showed signs of attempted forced entry, according to the blotter, and "officers also heard what they believed to be screaming coming from inside the residence."
Inside, they found four men, one of whom showed "visible signs of assault." They also found a gun and potted fields of marijuana (not to wax poetic).
The blotter states that the four suspects were arrested at the scene and booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Violation of the Uniform Controlled Substance Act.
