Acting on a tip, Pierce County sheriff’s deputies found two marijuana grow operations and a bounty of stolen property last week on a Roy-area property.

The tipster reported to deputies on Feb. 25 that there was possible stolen property at the home in the 4600 block of 350th Street Court South. There’s a history of criminal activity at the home and the homeowner and his son had outstanding misdemeanor warrants, the Sheriff’s Department reports.

Deputies went to the home and spotted a stolen quad and street bike parked out front. They located two suspects hiding in the garage (one of whom was in the rafters) and two more in the house.

They also found a small marijuana growing operation in the home and a larger operation in an outbuilding, deputies report. Both were dismantled.

A search warrant was served at the home and investigators confiscated four stolen motorcycles, a stolen quad, parts from two stolen vehicles and one stolen cargo trailer.

Investigators suspect the four people arrested  are responsible for several burglaries in the Roy area.
