LOGAN, Utah — Police located a marijuana growing operation in Logan after a man called police and asked them to come over as he made his brother leave his home.

Gary Larsen of the Logan Police Department said Cache County Sheriff’s deputies were called out to do a “civil standby”, which means the police ensure all parties are cooperating with each other peacefully, at a home where a man was asking his brother to leave.

The responding deputies smelled marijuana at the home, and they had consent from the owner to enter the residence. Once inside, they observed marijuana plants. After exiting the home, police obtained a search warrant and then entered again.

Officers discovered 28 pounds of marijuana along with a black resin synthesized from the plant. There were also 69 live plants in the residence with the accompanying pipes and lights to maintain the grow operation.

    Proof the government will do anything to make these guys look dumb, talk badly about eachother, and say things to further help them build their case. The story going out to the public has quite a few facts wrong…


      What part of the photos in this story did they get wrong? These brothers managed to make themselves look really dumb without any outside help.


        @ANOTHERBOB Who said anything about photos? Read the message your so quickly responding to with idiocy. Your opinion is yet another poorly derived personal choice gleaned from media stories all wound in errors by reporters trying to “Get The Scoop” and further distorted by “Protectors of The Peace” who misdirect and lie because they can.

    Too bad my hard earned tax dollars will be wasted on this instead of making it legal and using the tax income to build better schools.

      My cousins live in Colorado, and complain about the crappy state of their public schools all the time. Marijuana tax isn’t the solve all problem fixer that you think it is.


      Same argument could be made for taxing ladies of the evening for their professional services Andy. If you want to spend you life in a stoned haze why don’t you move to Colorado?
