Antelope Valley pot bust began with routine traffic stop

LITTLEROCK, Calif.

Deputies discovered the grow house near east Avenue S-10 and 92nd Street East.

It started when a deputy pulled a man over for talking on his cellphone on Wednesday. The deputy reportedly saw marijuana in the car and that led to the discovery of the marijuana grow house.

Investigators say the operators of the grow house were also stealing electricity.

Authorities found several hundred thousand dollars worth of marijuana.
