Some of the neighbors near a Glassell Park warehouse had grown suspicious about what was going on inside the building on San Fernando Road and Tyler Street. Neighbors could never get the LAPD to investigate even though the Northeast Division police station was just down the road. The police in neighboring Glendale, however, were interested in the building after an officer drove by the warehouse just outside the Glendale city limit and caught a whiff of marijuana. On Thursday, Glendale police raided the building and seized 1,000 pot plants with marijuana worth an estimated $1.5 million, according to the Glendale News Press.
The story does not say whether Glendale police contacted the LAPD about the matter.
