A man has been arrested on suspicion of cultivating a multi-million dollar marijuana project disguised as Christmas trees, and this comes just two days after appearing in court on similar charges.
According to LAIST, the man, Abdul Jamar, 36, was arrested on Wednesday. Jamar was arrested on a five acre farm, where around 1,000 pot plants were discovered.
According to LA Times, Jamar's pot farm stretched for about five acres and some of the plants were around eight feet tall. Sheriffs estimate that the plants were worth around $4 million.
According to NBC, detectives had to use chainsaws to cut down the pot plants, and then the U.S. Forest Service was called up to come and remove the plants.
Jamar was arrested back in June for cultivating marijuana, and he was charged. This time around when Jamar was approached by police, he said that he guessed he was in trouble once again.
