You’re Evicted! Nope, You’re Busted!
An eviction leads to a drug bust in Chicago. When officers were called to evict a man, they ended up busting him for having a room full of marijuana plants.
The man, Arckey Washington, was charged with unlawful possession of cannabis plants, one count of marijuana possession, and unlawful use of a weapon. All the officers were trying to do was serve an eviction notice. Once the officers were inside, they could smell the marijuana within the apartment. Upon looking around, an unloaded .357 was found lying on the floor along with 2 containers of marijuana that had been prepared for sale.
Upon further investigation, the officers found a mighty extensive marijuana growing operation happening behind a black plastic barricade in a bedroom. Some of the marijuana plants had grown to three feet high. The marijuana that was found is estimated to be worth $60,000.
Washington, 35, previously served prison time for a narcotics conviction.cannabis, chicago, Drug, drugs, tea
