Police: Extension cord led officers to pot operation in Spring Hill home



PITTSBURGH - Police said an extension cord led them to a marijuana-growing operation inside a Spring Hill home.

Investigators said Tomas Nemcok and Michael Nemcok were arrested after police found marijuana plants, a gun, money and prescription pills inside their Solar Street home Monday night.

According to police, officers were called to the home because someone noticed an extension cord was attached to their house without their permission.

Officers said they followed an extension cord that was plugged into a Duquesne Light main line and discovered the men had been growing marijuana plants inside their home.

Both men face several drug charges and others, including theft of services and risking a catastrophe.

Raymond Tester, who lives on Solar Street, told Channel 11's Vince Sims that he's glad police discovered the operation.

"I'm glad (something was done) and so are the other people on the street," Tester said.
