Police: Burglary may be tied to marijuana grow

Adam Jensen

A Douglas County Sheriff’s deputy responded to the Tahoe Resource Conservation District boat inspection station near U.S. Highway 50 and Nevada State Route 28 Sunday morning following a report of a burglary.

About 8 a.m., a Sheriff’s deputy responded and found a window at the station was broken out and two generators, copper attachments for a water pump and miscellaneous tools were missing, according to the deputy’s report.

A laptop computer, various electronics and two commercial vacuum cleaners were left untouched by the burglar or burglars.

Due to the timing of the theft and the nature of the items stolen, the burglary may be related to a marijuana grow, according to the report, which mentions a report of an outdoor grow in the nearby Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest.

The stolen items are valued at $3,000.
