Bloomington school officials knew something was up when they looked at a list of recent purchases and spotted an order for 100 lamps.
But the order was not for your ordinary kind of lamps, these lamps do more than just light up a room.
Bloomington custodial worker Guy Carlson used a district account to request the large number of grow lamps.
“I don’t know what their motivation was for using it, I suspect that it might have been to save some money,” said Bloomington Cmdr. Kevin Hinrichs.
Police say the use Carlson, and two other Bloomington school custodians, had for the lamps was to grow marijuana… lots of it.
