April 19, 2013
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Investigation by the Narcotics Unit of the Specialized Investigations Division led to Thursday’s discovery of a marijuana grow house at 4275 Sweden Drive.
A search warrant for the house was issued after detectives knocked on the door and smelled a strong odor of marijuana. No one answered. A short time later, one of the residents, Sarah Crawford, 22, came out of the house and looked around. Officers approached her and asked her about the strong odor of marijuana. Crawford told officers she wasn’t sure and denied consent to search the residence. Detectives obtained a search warrant and discovered a grow operation in a bedroom. Seized were 5.5 ounces of processed marijuana, one ounce of hashish, grow equipment and illegal drug paraphernalia.
Crawford’s roommate, Hadi Moini Yeganeh, 22, was arrested at his place of employment. Crawford and Yeganeh are both charged with felony marijuana and hashish possession. They are free on $16,000 bond each.
