Cops find 3mil stash of hydroponic pot in NE

Narcotics cops busted a hydroponic marijuana lab with more than $3 million worth of pot in an apartment in the Far Northeast earlier this afternoon. A tip led the officers to an apartment on Beverly Drive near Hemlock rented by Paul Miller, 39, of Warminster, Pa., said Narcotics Capt. Debra Frazier. Miller had more than 700 hydroponic plants, $13,000 in cash, a loaded .40-caliber firearm and equipment to help grow the plants inside the apartment, Frazier said. He was arrested on drug charges. Frazier said it was unclear where Miller had been distributing the hydroponic pot.
