Date and Time of Release: July 26, 2013 / 01:20 a.m.
On July 25, 2013, at approximately 7:34 p.m., the Arcadia Police Department received a request for assistance from the Pasadena Humane Society. They reported that their field services personnel responded to a residence located in the 200 block of East Longden Avenue on a report of dogs-at-large. Once the dogs were located and returned to the residence, an attempt was made to contact the owner. The front door of the residence was open but there was no answer which prompted the call to the Arcadia Police Department for assistance.
The officers of the Arcadia Police Department were also unsuccessful in their attempts to contact anyone at the residence. The officers then entered the unsecured home to conduct a welfare check. During the check, the officers discovered what appeared to be a marijuana grow house operation. The home was unoccupied and no arrests have been made. Approximately three hundred marijuana plants in various stages were confiscated.
The Arcadia Police Department Detective Bureau is conducting the investigation.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact the Arcadia Police Department at (626) 574-5150, and refer to case #13-3492. You can also submit crime tips and information via text, phone, or web to LA Regional Crime Stoppers, 800-222-TIPS (8477).
