While the way Pelletier got caught is really funny, the police are saying his track record isn't quite as laughable. He's actually a very dangerous guy.
Chavez called Jason Pelletier "a hardened criminal with a very serious criminal history" that includes guns and drugs.
The Southern Nevada Cannabis Operation and Regional Enforcement (SCORE) was sent in to take down the marijuana operation and confiscated "dozens" of plants. There's no word yet on what charges will be filed against the couple.
