Pittsburgh police allegedly discovered a large marijuana grow in the city this week, in a bust which resulted in three arrests.
Pittsburgh police allege that a marijuana grow operation, containing over 300 plants, was discovered in Lawrenceville. Police say that the grow was located in a commercial building, at the intersection of Davison Street and Urbana Way, on the second floor. Apparently police were led to the grow as a result of an early morning 911 call on Thursday, which reported a burglary in process at the location.
Upon arrival police allegedly encountered two suspects, ages 30 and 31, burglarizing bags of marijuana from the building, and a third suspect, age 34, waiting in the area as the getaway driver.
The men face various charges, including possession with intent to distribute, burglary, and possessing instruments of crime.
Police say that an investigation is ongoing to determine who was growing the marijuana.
