Eight "how to" books on growing weed indoors were recovered from the home of 58-year-old Marquis Archibald. Apparently, Archibald followed through on his avid reading habits: Police also nabbed 48 pot plants and over three pounds of harvested marijuana.
The bust came after the MPD's Organized Crime Unit received an anonymous complaint about a possible "grow house." Archibald allowed officers inside his home, where they discovered a marijuana growing set-up with an irrigation system and heat control in a shed attached to the residence.
Three handguns were also discovered hidden underneath a cat's play-box.
Archibald was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance. Bianca Phillips
