A budding marijuana-growing operation was discovered after residents of a Lincoln house called police to report the theft of marijuana pipes.
Officers were called to the house Saturday morning by residents who reported that two people, one of them armed with a handgun, forced their way in and took two hookah pipes.
While questioning the residents, police noticed marijuana, paraphernalia and several bottles of fertilizer. They also saw light shining from under a door barred with a padlock and a power cord snaking into the room.
After getting a search warrant, police found three marijuana plants, grow lights and other equipment. A 19-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of manufacturing marijuana and ticketed his roommates for having marijuana paraphernalia.
