This week New Jersey Police made a record bust when they discovered a multimillion network of homes used to grow pounds and pounds of weed. They seized a total of 3,370 growing plants, 115 pounds of harvested pot and $65,000 cash. Not cool.
The investigation started accidentally on Feb. 17 when Monroe Township Police Officer Thomas Lucasiewicz smelled marijuana coming from the chimney of a home on Spotswood-Englishtown Road. When he knocked, Thu N. Nguyen opened the door, and Lucasiewicz smelled unusable pot plants being burned in the fireplace, authorities said.
Nguyen was arrested and police found 1,064 pot plants growing in the basement and master bedroom.
That was only the beginning, and the bust led to search warrants for five more rented houses in four other towns: Millstone, Old Bridge, Manalapan and Manahawkin.
Five of the homes were being used to grow marijuana. One of the suspects lived in a sixth home, on Hidden Court in Old Bridge, where police seized $60,000 cash and vacuum bags used to package the pot.
Stories like this bring a tear to my eye. Especially since I live in New Jersey so I know that at least one of my dealers supply probably traces back to this operation. If I go and any of my guys say they are dry, we are gonna have problems.
