POLICE: CHINESE HOMEOWNERS BEHIND POT GROWING FACTORIES

POLICE: CHINESE HOMEOWNERS BEHIND POT GROWING FACTORIES

Drew Mikkelsen | November 28, 2017

Detectives believe Chinese nationals turned dozens of Western Washington homes into pot growing factories.

Their product, according to the Grays Harbor Sheriff’s Office, was being sold on the East Coast, where prices are higher for marijuana than in Washington, where sales are legal.

But growing and selling marijuana without a license, remains illegal, said Detective Steve Shumate.

Tuesday morning officers raided six homes with pot growing operations in King and Thurston counties and more than 30 in Grays Harbor County.

Shumate said the cash proceeds from the sales were put towards the home purchases.
