Accused pot grower arrested again at another Lancaster farm
A man who was arrested three months ago on suspicion of growing marijuana was detained again this week, accused of the same thing by the same L.A. County sheriff's deputy who first caught him.
Authorities contend Abdul Jamar's newest marijuana patch is about six miles from his first one in Lancaster. The latest plot was five acres and contained plants up to eight feet tall and worth an estimated $4 million, according to sheriffs.
When he was first approached by the deputy, officials say, Jamar said: "I guess I'm in trouble again."
Jamar was being held on suspicion of cultivation of marijuana, sheriffs said.
