Street Crimes Unit Investigate Two Posessing 50 Pounds Of Pot

Fifty Pounds Of Pot At Home Found After Medical Call

Mesa County, Colo. -- Patrol deputies responding to a residence about 1:15 p.m. on December 20, 2013, on 30 Road in Grand Junction, for a medical call cleared the scene and turned it over to our agency's Street Crimes Unit. What deputies found was an overwhelming smell of marijuana permeating the home on initial response, then they located the source of the smell.

Mason jars that normally would hold canned fruits or vegetables were instead, loaded with pot. After an inventory of the contents of all marijuana located in the home was complete, abut 50 pounds marijuana was booked into evidence related to this incident. That is far more than personal use, even for the two adults who live in the home.

The case remains under investigation. Further details will be released as they become available. You can always follow us on Twitter @SheriffMesaColo using #GVCopBeat and #MesaCounty for details on emergency incidents in our County.
