• Burien PD: Felon found with stack of cash, pot plants -- again


    BURIEN, Wash. - Burien police say a man who spent time in federal prison for marijuana manufacturing was found with plants again.

    On Tuesday, Burien police were called to the 500 block of Southwest 128th Street by U.S. federal probation officers who were checking on a parolee under supervision.

    The probation officers said they discovered the man was once again growing marijuana. Burien detectives said they seized 83 plants, 30 pounds of drying marijuana and $8,420 in cash.

    Officers removed the plants.

    “We suspect the federal judge won’t be very happy with the parolee. We were happy to remove this illegal grow and lessen the opportunity for crimes in the neighborhood and kids being introduced to drugs,” Burien police said on its Facebook page.
