Deputies find 21,000-lb. pot stash at East Side home
Cocaine and assault weapons recovered
Sheriff's deputies found more than 21,000 pounds of marijuana, 16 kilos of cocaine, weapons and body armor when they responded to a call about a possible break-in at an East Side home Tuesday, a spokeswoman said.
Deputies were called to the 9100 block of East Loma Linda Place on Tuesday around 9 p.m. after someone reported a home invasion or break-in, said Deputy Dawn Barkman, a Pima County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman
Deputies found 1,051 bales of pot, worth more than $10 million, the cocaine, an unknown number of assault rifles and body armor, Barkman said.
Barkman said no one was at the home at the time.
The marijuana will be incinerated at an undisclosed location. The county burns confiscated drugs each month, she said, but the amount recovered was unusual.
