Keeping up with the Joneses can be difficult with the cost of utilities going through the roof.
Last June an English couple were sentenced to 3.5 years in jail after being busted for growing in two separate homes. Perhaps they spent all their loot partying, because they hadn’t paid their gas bill for months and were stealing electricity. When the utility companies arrived to settle the score, they discovered the grow operations, and the two were busted.
The same month, a Patton, Pennsylvania, couple were similarly arrested for failing to remove their grow operation from a trailer park home after they received an eviction notice. The landlord even offered cash to help relocate them, anxious to proceed with plans to tear down the trailer park and sell it to developers. With the couple’s pot produce off the market, there will be less stoned and hungry residents to patronize the Krispy Kreme donut shop and Kentucky Fried Chicken outlets that are going to replace their former home.
