Cops found pot farm after accidental 911 call

A man was arrested Friday in Stanton, California when authorities responding to a hang-up 911 call discovered what they believed to be an indoor marijuana growing operation. The 911 call was apparently made by a computer in the home, said spokesman Jim Amormino. "What set the computer off, we don't know."

No one spoke during the call, but authorities traced it to a home. When responding deputies checked the license plate on a vehicle outside, they discovered the owner was wanted on a $15,000 warrant.

They knocked on the door and looked inside and saw packages of what appeared to be marijuana on a table. After entering the home, they found what Amormino described as a "sophisticated" marijuana farm with about 100 plants, and a handgun. A man in the home was arrested. (info from KNBC)
