The Tangipahoa Sheriff's office reports that a Kentwood man "growing his own" could have done a slightly better job at concealing his marijuana-growing operation.
Police say an anonymous tip to narcotics agents led them to a home on Highway 1054 in Kentwood. The tipster had advised that someone was growing marijuana at the address.
Narcotic Agents say they didn't have to search very hard, finding nine potted marijuana plants on the home's front steps.
Their report shows that the homeowner gave consent to search the residence, where police say they also found several homemade marijuana smoking apparatuses and a glass container containing several marijuana seeds in the bedroom.
Agents said they also located a plastic dish that contained marijuana that appeared to in the germination stage on a bedroom window sill.
Police arrested and charged Carlos " Trey" Ray Hoskins III with cultivation of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
