Next time don't be so greedy and remember to pay off your bosses, dumb little piggy:
Thanks to The Wall Street Journal + the AP:
. — A Buffalo police officer has been charged with running a marijuana
-growing operation inside a warehouse in the city.
The U.S. Attorney's Office says Officer Jorge Melendez and a second man, Jason Elardo, were growing more than 1,000 plants inside the well-equipped location. Melendez was arrested at police headquarters Thursday after his shift.
Court documents show investigators have been watching the property since being tipped to the operation last May. City property records indicate Melendez and Elardo bought the building in December 2007.
The pair made initial appearances in federal court and were ordered held for a detention hearing Friday. Neither has yet hired a lawyer.
Police Commissioner Daniel Derenda says Melendez, the son of a late, retired officer, is off the force. He'd been an officer for four years.

Do you think he'll be made an example of for breaking the public trust, his oath of office or some stupid moral clause in his contract? I'm sick of those in power, especially the judicial industry and Congress, breaking the law and then going "Oooooppps, Sorry" when caught and getting nothing more than a slap on the wrist and a better job. Fuck 'em all to hell if this guy doesn't do solid time like all the other victims in jail for growing a plant.
Edit: Here's another post with some more info. He's being prosecuted for growing over 100 plants, but I don't think he was growing as many as the AP claimed. Sorry. Thanks to WRGZ.
