Main reason for grow house raids?
    #147237 - 11/19/08 04:16 PM (8 years, 20 days ago)

Is there a very prominant reason why a LEO would take notice to your operation?

I've heard rumors that the energy companies can report you if your using a lot of energy with your light and fan systems but I think that is just for giant operations.

I guess; energy consumption, smell and transportation of materials. Energy consumption is only a problem for large grows. Heat can also be a problem when it melts snow or is detected by helicopters (also only a problem for larger grows.)

Oh and.. Don't tell anyone.

Smell escaping the house is a issue
Smell inside the house is a issue if you have visitors or if for some reason a cop entered your house
Purchasing materials heatbagly (go to a hydroshop owned by KNOWN criminals and your gold)
Transporting materils heatbagly (best to take a friends car, maybe detour home)
Disposing materials heatbagly(throwing out soil in your trash, nutrient containers, basically anything that can hint off your growing dr00gz)

You can use 1000watters per room in your house before shit gets suspecious. Snow melting off your room is never good :rolleyes:

that's the general rule of thumb, it's more dependant on what the typical house in your neighborhood uses.

I totally agree with magash. Keep your mouth shut.

#1 reason people get raided:
Someone ratted on them.


Power, heat, buying things from a hydro shop can be suspicious, but what goes from "hummmmmm" to raid is someone in the know. Only one person should know about your grow... you.

I think another huge reason you see a lot of grow raids is stolen power.  Power usage on its own won't draw any type of attention to your house unless you want to run like 40,000 watts worth of gear.  However, you tap into that power line without paying for it and you'll have the power company on your ass in no time.  Power companies are a business, if they're making money off of you they're not going to notice.  If all of a sudden they notice a huge surge of power without someone footing the bill they're gonna sniff around.

would agree w/ stolen power.  Recent big busts in town were due to stealing power;  Why the hell would you be a thief when your already a criminal for growing in de casa?

baka! (idiot)

but it's all the reasons above; or if you live in an apartment a pest control guy can be annoying.  One time a pest control guy left his card w his name in my grow room, and i bitched the office people out saying he stole stuff and went through my old ladies panty drawer and then i changed the door knob to one w/ a lock.  Still grew the weed :bigblunt: a lesson well learned

What about having grow boxes/ supplies sent to your house through the mail? Who would pick up on the sort of thing?

I tell you guys about it.  Should I stop my grow log?  I don't have a single friend in this new town I am in so I don't think that's a problem.  If you live in an apartment just be smart about it.  Be very nice to your neighbors and help them whenever you can.  Pay your bills on time every month too.  What I am worried most about is someone from the apt mgt walking in unannounced while I am gone.  This is why I am changing the deadbolt soon.  But generally i agree with the loose lips sink ships mantra.

they gotta give you 24hours notice in most places
a lot of people change locks without asking... chances are your landlord won't find out till you move out.

if the lock is inside your apartment they cant really do shit cuz they should never even know lol

Coo thanks.  When we moved in we made them clean stuff (Water damage under the sink, the dishwasher was left dirty... ect) and maintenance came in without notifying us and just left a note.  I have no idea if they saw the two lil babies we had in the laundry room by where they worked but we havent had any problems... 6... maybe 7 months later now.  Thats why i ask... But i took the bathroom lock and put it on the closet in the room and also lock my room door.  But changing the deadbolt sounds like the end all solution...
