A deputy was called to an apartment complex in northeast Pima County last month after a landlord found marijuana plants in the unit of an evicted tenant.
In a Pima County Sheriff’s Department report, the deputy stated: “I went into the back room where I noticed the hydro-colonic setup for growing. I looked at the bottom and saw one small green plant…I then went out to the back patio and found another small, tiny little marijuana plant that I knew through my training and experience to be marijuana,” the deputy stated.
The deputy took photos of the two dried up pot plants before collecting them as evidence. The deputy also took into evidence a glass pipe and a bong that were left behind.
The deputy left the “hydro-colonic” growing equipment for the landlord to discard.
