LAPD Captain Investigated in Illegal Marijuana Grow

A Los Angeles Police Department captain faces an internal affairs investigation after it was discovered he was allegedly operating an illegal marijuana growing operation.

The LAPD said in a statement Thursday it had assigned an un-named employee to home while its internal affairs unit investigated.

Other department officials, who declined to be publicly identified, said the employee is a department captain who was recently assigned to the LAPD’s Northeast and Rampart Divisions, and the officials said the investigation has expanded into ‘other areas.’

According to the LAPD statement the illegal growing operation was discovered in a warehouse on Bradley Avenue in the department’s Foothill Division on October 31, 2017, when a burglary report was called-in.

“The suspects pried open the rear door of the location and entered the business,” the LAPD said. “The suspects fled the location with the victim’s property, which consisted of a safe, cigarettes, cigars, and marijuana plants.”

A second illegal growing operation was discovered during the investigation of the captain’s involvement in the warehouse location, the department officials said.
