Not so swift surrender
My email moves so fast that if I don't check it every couple of hours, mail gets buried three pages back so I almost missed this story. The police in Peel, Canada have a "Green Team" comprised of five officers whose sole job is to bust grow-ops. They're busy guys, averaging about 200 busts a year.
They say the growers are getting smarter, but you couldn't prove it by this one.
Ryan says there are some stranger tales to tell. He recalled the recent story of a hydro worker who was in a Brampton neighbourhood inspecting a line when someone came out of a house waving his arms in the air and calling out, "Okay, you got me."I wouldn't think it would be so difficult to tell the guy wasn't a cop. The lesson being if you're so paranoid that you "give yourself up" to a water inspector, you probably shouldn't be in the grow-op business.
The man confessed that he was growing marijuana in the house, then collected his family and drove away, leaving his crop for police to harvest.
