A 911 hangup uncovers pot plants

BROCKVILLE – A Brockville man can thank a person phoning 911 and hanging up for uncovering marijuana plants in his house.

City officers responded early Saturday morning to the hangup emergency call and found out the dialer had left the building on Bennett Street.

But, while officers were inside the home, they spotted seven young marijuana plants.

The pot plants were seized and a 41-year-year city man is facing drug production charges. He has a notice to appear in court.
