A man’s marijuana grow operation was uncovered by police after he called them to report that he was feeling ill, according to police in Austria.
Vienna police said that they have arrested the 27-year-old man, who was not identified, after officers found 30 marijuana plants in his home.
He was charged with possession of marijuana after claiming that he never sold marijuana to others.
According to the police, the 27-year-old called emergency services around 4:00 a.m. on Monday, complaining of pain and saying that he felt ill.
Police officers who arrived at the scene, knocked on the door, but the man did not answer. Firefighters and police officers decided to break the door down, fearing for the life of the homeowner.
Inside, they found the 27-year-old man asleep. Police woke him up, and he quickly went to close the door to another room. The officers became suspicious, and they soon discovered that the neighboring room contained marijuana plants.
