Police Vs Marijuana Operations
    #3001568 - 08/13/04 05:47 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I'm sure everyone knows the major cause of a operation getting busted, its usually always leaked information. But what about the other times where police actully find these operations? what kinds of things do they have at their disposel?

With all these questions in mind im interested in infomration that has any relation to this subject. So im asking that if any of you know any good sites with any information, news, or events about growing ops getting busted and how, can you post them here. It would be must appreciated. Indoor ops are just as interesting too btw.

I know locally (southern california) we have a helicopter constantly circling the city. It wouldn't suprise me if they were on the lookout for backyard type grows, or using infared to detect a large amount of heat (lights) from a house.

Interesting, although I doubt they have those around here, im curious if there is any flaws to that system which one could exploit?
I also notice in the news they never mention if they were tipped off or any such thing, good move on their part.

Fires and burglaries are the ones I remember from criminal justice. They are actually required to search the premises on both occations.

helicopters are the main ones here, for indoor/outdoor. i have friends in the states that see undercover cops walk their dogs by and let them sniff and pee in certain yards of choice. the best thing is police are lazy, they will not go out in the bush unless they have a certain spot to check, dont make your area noticeable. i log/stump jump to my areas.

my excuss is i have exotic animals that need heat. it is actually a 100% fool proof method as i dont grow indoors anymore. having neighbours think/know that you have somthing legit that requirs heat is good. animals is probably the best excuss, plants seem to raise more suspicion.

big mouth is certainly the fastest way to go to jail.

the IR (infra red) night vision apparatus are used to detect heat and possible indoors growing in urban areas, while UV pictures (i don't know if there are UV displays already) make the outdoor crops shine like white under a black light among the non shiny flora...
thats easy to spot IF they reallly wanted...

that uv thingy is exactly why i never have more than a couple plants per plot, although i dont really understand how it works.  the more active your willing to be the better off your gonna be.  plus its nice to get out in the wilderness and tend to your hemp :smile:

there are other plants that reflect the UV and glow likewise marijuana, you could plant a lot of these around your field, or scatter them up and scatter your plants if your operation is that large!

Helicopters are one of the biggest problems, a large outdoor patch sticks out like a flare. They aren't allowed to scan your house for heat any more because it was dubbed an invasion of privacy maybe two years ago.

I don't know anything about them being able to detect plants with some special UV-pot ray, never ever heard of that.

What I know they do is fly in a grid and video tape land scapes, then play the tape on several monitors for several people which can be used to zoom in on suspicious plants.

Random hikers/hunters can be a problem too.

this is a 1000nm IR photo done with a sony F-828 on night shot with an infrared filter... it's no where near as good as the models that police use... if you look, you will see several different shades of white on the foliage, Pine trees are darker than maples and oaks...




if they use FLIR to spot your crops they still have to investigate and find a way to gain access to the area such as a 'domestic call' or a 'neighbor complaint' in order to make an arrest

i think i have mistaken myself, i think it's all IR, not UV that shows the plants.
i don't know (cmon huh?) the scientific names of other glowing plants but prisioner has given a good pointer here...

any good search on the web should yield useful results but there are always libraries which are much more steady of an info source... a talk to any open minded/good willing biology studant/teacher can help you with bibliographic references for sure... :wink:
