Cops Probing Sewer Problem Sniff Out Pot Operation

(AP) Deputies investigating a sewer problem at a Minnesota home smelled something amiss _ a strong odor of marijuana. Grant County Sheriff Dwight Walvatne said deputies went to the home in Herman this week intending to cite the owner for failing to connect to the city's main sewer line, in violation of a public health ordinance.

After noticing the smell of pot, they obtained a search warrant and found what they described as a large indoor pot growing operation.

They seized an estimated $10,000 worth of marijuana along with equipment to grow it, and charged a 21-year-old man with two felony drug counts.
