Pot Grannies Busted

Two women described by a prosecutor as "marijuana grannies" were jailed on allegations that they were growing hundreds of pot plants in their San Bruno home, authorities said Tuesday.

Aleen Lam, 72, and Virginia Chan Pon, 65, were arrested Friday after neighbors called police to report a burglary, said San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. When officers arrived, they found the door had been kicked in and nobody was home. Through the broken door, police could see marijuana growing inside the house, Wagstaffe said.

Police obtained a search warrant and found 800 marijuana plants, $3,000 in cash and an electrical bypass that allowed the women to tap into a Pacific Gas and Electric Co. power line to steal electricity, Wagstaffe said.

As for the two men accused of breaking into the home, they were arrested nearby. When officers pulled over a car that fit a description neighbors provided, they found Kitae Chae, 38, and Kenny Kong, 34, with thousands of dollars in cash and marijuana growing equipment, Wagstaffe said.

Looks like Cheech and Chong will get some jail time too.
