Memphis Police Bust Marijuana "Grow House"

Posted By on Tue, Dec 11, 2007 at 4:00 AM

Memphis police officers got a few tips on how to grow pot at a bust near the Galloway Golf Course on Friday.

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.
