Break-in at Pasco marijuana grow

A gunshot was fired during a break-in early Thursday at a backyard marijuana grow in Pasco.

Police say Manuel A. Quintero, 21, broke into the grow on Lincoln Drive and stole at least one large plant, which was found in a neighbor’s yard.

The Royal City man was booked into the Franklin County jail on suspicion of robbery.

Police did not say who fired the shot, though no injuries were reported.

Investigators are working to determine if the grow is legal.
