    MERRIMACK – A curious officer on his way to work discovered a private marijuana patch, leading to a search of a man's home which uncovered a sophisticated indoor marijuana grow room, police said.

    Lt. Paul Poirier was on his way to work last Friday afternoon when he saw a man carrying a gallon of water and wearing a backpack walk across Daniel Webster Highway and into some woods.

    Curious, Poirier pulled over and followed the man and watched as he tended to more than 30 marijuana plants, police said. The man, identified as Shawn Proulx, 32, of 11-23 Kimberly Drive, was arrested and charged with cultivating marijuana. Police seized the plants.

    Investigators later obtained a search warrant for Proulx' condominium where they allegedly found a sophisticated indoor marijuana grow room with grow lights, digital timers and fans, ventilation systems, grow chemicals, plant food, fertilizer and other paraphernalia.

    Proulx was released on bail and is to appear today in Merrimack District Court for arraignment.

    You gotta be stupid lazy to be growing and not be paranoid enough to make sure you aren't followed.

    I mean seriously how hard is it to make a quarter mile trek off course and then backtrack to check for signs of being followed before going to your spot.

    Cops ain't the only ones after your shit.
