Police: Google Earth helped make pot bust
GRANT'S PASS, Ore. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Oregon Police say a view from space helped make a big drug bust.
Police received a tip that 50-year-old Curtis Croft was bragging about all the marijuana he was growing on his property.
Investigators took to Google Earth to find out what they could see.
Authorities say satellite images showed dozens of plants in rows.
Croft legally was registered to grow for 5 people, which equals about 30 plants, but police found nearly 100 on his property.
