‘Elaborate’ Pot Farm Found At Vernon Warehouse

By EGP News Report

Vernon fire authorities last week seized 400 pots of marijuana plants from a warehouse located on the 2000 block of 37th Street, between Alameda Avenue and Santa Fe Street. A man at the scene, Jason Humes, was taken into custody.

At 10:30 on June 12, fire officials visited the warehouse a routine visit and noticed a man walking into the building. But they received no response when they knocked on the door of the warehouse.

Finding this suspicious the fire officials called in the police. Eventually the man opened the door and showed the officials into the warehouse. While inspecting the facility, the officials detected the odor of marijuana, leading to the discovery of an “elaborate marijuana farm” growing inside a trailer and a container, according to Lt. Jerry Winegar.

Police confiscated the plants, and took Humes into custody. The investigation is ongoing.
