Homeowner, 4 others arrested in suspected burglary of pot-growing operation

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (AP) – Four people have been arrested in the burglary of a Commerce City home that police suspect houses a large marijuana growing operation.

Police in the north-Denver suburb say they discovered a burglary in progress when they checked out a report of a man leaving a suspicious vehicle to enter the home Wednesday morning.

Nearby elementary and middle schools were locked down until early afternoon while they looked for the suspects.



The homeowner, a woman, was also arrested on charges of drug possession with intent to distribute and child abuse.
