Never sue your builder
    #3362520 - 11/15/04 02:42 AM (12 years, 26 days ago)

Marijuana 'grow rooms' found behind fake wall, vault door
Detroit Free Press

VASSAR TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Acting on an informant's tip about a recently built home, police found what they describe as an elaborate indoor marijuana-growing complex hidden behind a fake wall and a bank-vault door at the home.

In July, Mark T. Latting sued his builder, claiming defective workmanship on the Tuscola County home, The Bay City Times reported. Two months later, undercover police investigating Latting searched his home and turned up the "grow rooms."

Police say a wall section rotated on a turnstile when they pushed on a pool-cue rack built into the wall. That led to a furnace room, they say, which led to a bank-vault door that could be opened with a keypad combination.

Behind the vault door, officers said they found two grow rooms with their own ventilation systems leading outside, carbon-dioxide tanks to provide gas for plant growth and other equipment related to growing pot.

"These two marijuana grow rooms were built as part of the plans for the new home," said Detective Lt. Mitch Krugielki, commander of the Thumb Narcotics Unit. "It had (marijuana) drying racks built in the hallway between the two grow rooms."

Latting, 49, was charged following the Sept. 28 search with seven counts, including maintaining a drug house. On Nov. 5, Tuscola County District Judge Kim David Glaspie told lawyers to submit briefs within 14 days so he could decide whether to order Latting to stand trial.

Latting's lawyer Mark W. Latchana plans to challenge whether the police search of Latting's home was legal. Latchana said police threatened to get a search warrant if they weren't let behind the vault door.

"The police claim they were granted consent to search (Latting's) home, but there is some question whether the consent given was valid," Latchana said.

Police said they began conducting surveillance on Latting after receiving an anonymous tip that an indoor marijuana-growing complex had been built as part of the home. Latchana said he doesn't know the informant's identity.

Latting's lawsuit against his builder is pending.

Sad that he didn't know to never give the police your consent, always refuse their searches until they get a warrant

All that preparation for growing too became completely useless. What a shame

I find it odd that nowhere in the article does it actually mention that he was growing anything... only that he had a setup to grow...

well I don't believe it plausable to be arrested and charged for running a drug house along with 6 other "accounts" just for having a grow room. The room isn't illegal and it cannot be proved he was going to grow cannabis sativa. There has to be more to the story the press isn't releasing. I dont think he blabbed to anyone, I believe once he tried suing the builder the builder thought "oh ya, take this buddy" Its more than obvious why an individual would want a builder to build that setup.

nope, not even any seeds.  just shit that could be used to grow marijuana.  thats just stupid as fuck.  the only thing they got on him is suspiscion because of the room being designed to grow plants in with a ventilation system and CO2 tank(s).  i mean jesus christ :smirk: they could go to my grandmas house and claim she grows weed with all her plant supplies, and she just likes flowers.  she aint got no hidden room or CO2 tank, but hey, thats not the point, the point is....where is the fucking crime in having a house with a room in it?

lol, how pathetic.  desperate piglets.  go bust some fuckin meth labs or something, lamers.
