Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies from the Crescenta Valley Station responded to a 911 hang up call and discovered several marijuana plants in a home.
The 911 call came into the station about 5:30 p.m. on Dec. 1. Deputies were sent to the residence where the call originated to make certain there was not someone in need. They entered the property in the 12000 block of Little Tujunga Canyon in Sylmar. Deputies knocked on the door but did not get a response. They moved around the home, continuing to knock on doors and windows announcing their presence.
Several deputies reported hearing a moaning sound coming from inside the home. They forcefully entered the home and began looking for someone in need. The station dispatcher was continuing to attempt to contact the number that made the initial 911 call but did not get a response.
Deputies walked into a room and allegedly discovered a large quantity of marijuana plants growing under bright lighting. They continued to other rooms and discovered more marijuana being cultivated.
No victim was found and no arrests were reported as of press time.
