Routine call leads to large marijuana operation bust
Detective Sgt. Chip Chabot said he arrived at the home of 44-year-old Kenneth Harnum on an unrelated matter last Saturday and ascertained probable cause to collect a search warrant for the property.
“Going in, you never really know what you’re going to run into, so it’s better to have backup and not have to use it then not have backup and need it,” he said.
“There were a significant number of plants,” said Chabot. “For Auburn, it was a pretty good sized grow operation.”
Harnum was arrested on charges of manufacturing and possessing a controlled drug.
