Monterey Park Police Arrest Marijuana Grow House Suspect


Monterey Park detectives ended a month-long investigation by arresting a 32-year-old man at his residence, where marijuana was being cultivated throughout the two-story home, police said Tuesday.

Bikram Soni was arrested at his home in the 1100 block of Dover Way on Friday, said Sgt. Frank Duke of the Monterey Park Police Department.

Detectives from the Monterey Park Police Department Crime Impact Team found Soni’s home had been “completely converted into an indoor grow operation with over 300 marijuana plants,” according to Duke. About 55 pounds of cannibis was seized, the sergeant said.

Soni was booked at the Monterey Park Police Department, with bail set at $165,000.
