Blast Leads Cops to 160 Pot Plants

Apparently someone wasn’t stoned when they heard a loud blast in Lakeside Thursday morning. They did what they are supposed to do in an emergency and called 911.

Deputies arrived to the home where the blast apparently originated on Palomino Ridge Drive and Jennings Vista Trail. They knocked on the door and asked for permission to check inside and make sure no one inside was injured, according to Lt. Gary Steadman.

He said the resident, Tim McIntosh, invited the deputies inside where they found 160 marijuana plants.

Needless to say he was arrested and taken into custody. It’s still not clear where the blast came from.
