OK, guys, here's a freebie: If you are going to grow enough pot to fill an entire basement, at least try and keep it a secret.
From the Metropolitan Police Department's 5D listserv comes the tale of a man who was busted with a "massive marijuana farm" because no one bothered to shut the door at a Northwest home.
According to the listserv posting, officers patrolling Adams Street NW stumbled upon an open, seemingly unattended door to a home Tuesday night. They started to poke around and met a man who "approached the door and began acting evasive."
"Further investigation revealed a massive marijuana farm being cultivated in the basement of the location," the posting reads, "also recovered were three firearms and many other distribution materials."
