Heidi Fleiss could be in deep shit after she was caught with hundreds of marijuana plants earlier this month. It’s all very weird how she got found out, as well. Police turned up on August 7 to arrest some other woman that they didn’t find there (like, what?) and instead were greeted with Fleiss’ 158 pot plants. She wasn’t arrested at the time, but when police left and then came back, they then found another 234 plants and grow lights, chemicals, etc. LOL!
From KVVU-TV Fox 5:
Police said that on Aug. 7, a deputy arrived at Fleiss’ address in order to locate a woman wanted on arrest warrants.
That officer didn’t find the wanted woman, but instead located several marijuana plants growing in pots in the backyard.
Fleiss, 47, was then observed walking from a home nearby to her residence, where she was questioned by deputies.
Fleiss told police she had been growing marijuana in order to sell it to a cooperative located in Las Vegas. However, Fleiss told police she had not obtained a license allowing her to do so.
Police located 158 marijuana plants in Fleiss’ backyard, and an additional 234 plants in the aforementioned nearby home. They also found several bottles of chemicals, two grow lights and a ballast.
The plants were collected as evidence.
Deputies said that because Fleiss was cooperative and consented to a search of the property, she was not arrested. Instead, the case was forwarded to the Nye County District Attorney for charges to be filed.
Fleiss faces charges of possession of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of marijuana over one ounce and possession of drug paraphernalia, among other charges.
Hilarious. Do we think she’ll go to jail for this or just get charged with a hefty fine? Complexion of the protection points to her roaming free, but she’s been to jail before and now has a criminal record, so this could go either way. I bet she’s pissed about losing all those drugs, though.
