MESA COUNTY, Colo. What started out as a medical call to a residence turned into a 50 pound pot bust.

Around 1:15 p.m. on Friday, patrol deputies responded to a home on 30 Road in Grand Junction for a medical call. That was when they noticed an overwhelming smell of marijuana permeating the home and then they located the source of the smell. The deputies cleared the scene and turned it over to the Mesa County Street Crimes Unit.

Mason jars, which normally would hold canned fruits or veggies, were loaded with pot. After an inventory of the contents of all the marijuana located in the home was complete, about 50 pounds of pot was booked into evidence related to this incident. Officials say, 50 pounds of pot is far more than personal use, even for the two adults residing at the residence.

The case remains under investigation.
