Accused told police that he simply threw the seeds in his yard, after which they grew spontaneously

Shortly after 8:00 a.m. yesterday morning, authorities in the West destroyed a small marijuana “plantation” after a search was conducted at a residence in More Tomorrow.

According to police reports, the officers searched the residence at about 8:25 a.m., but nothing illegal was found inside the home.

In the yard, however, police discovered 16 small marijuana plants about seven feet away from the house. The plants were reportedly found inside the base of a rusty rim.

Police report that the homeowner and two minors were present at the time of the search.

Upon the detection of the plants, the homeowner reportedly told the police officers, “Boss, da just some seeds weh I dash in there dat grow up”, insisting that “it’s not cultivation.”

Nevertheless, the police did not buy his story and the homeowner was detained, pending a charge of cultivation of cannabis.
