Call About Suicide Risk Leads to Pot Bust



DORAVILLE, Ga. (AP) -- Police in suburban Atlanta say a call about a possible suicide risk led officers to a marijuana grow house.

Doraville police tell The Atlanta Journal-Constitution a man called police around 6 a.m. Sunday saying he was worried his girlfriend might kill herself.

Police say the man gave them an address where he believed his girlfriend might be staying.

Officers went to the address. After about 20 minutes, a person came out and told police the woman wasn't inside but refused to let officers inside.

Police spokesman Gene Callaway says officers got a warrant to make sure the woman wasn't inside.

Instead they found more than 400 marijuana plants worth about $2.5 million. Police arrested one person.

Callaway says the woman hasn't been found.
