Wonder where all that wonderful, hydroponic, strangely market-rate marijuana (it's supposed to be nonprofit) at pot shops comes from?
We don't. There's been a correlation between busts of grow-houses, which cops have said are often run by gangs and other criminal enterprises, and the explosion in medical cannabis dispensaries in L.A.
Anyway, another bites the dust, it would seem:
Authorities in the unincorporated San Gabriel Valley town of Bassett got a decent haul this week. They claim to have pulled 1,000 weed plants out of three industrial buildings in the 200 block of S. Eighth Ave., according to the SGV Tribune.
Four people were arrested in connection with the bust, including: Colby Kelly, 39, Alfred Serrato, 39, Brandon Roberto, 27.
It appears to us cops had an eye on the place because the bust yesterday involved a search warrant.
