Grow Operation Discovered in NOLA Park

NOLA park

NEW ORLEANS — A covert marijuana grow room was discovered this week in a storage shed at Pritchard Park. Attendant Michael MacRoulé said the pungent odor is what first caught his attention. “I mean, it smelled like ten shades of something potent up in there.” Found along with the 37 plants and hydroponic system were a can of Aquanet hairspray, a bag of bird seed and a set of false teeth. Local constable Bill Kremble commented that the investigation was being narrowed to suspects at the retirement villa adjacent to the park.
