Colo. medical marijuana growers report invasion

WELLINGTON, Colo. (AP) — Deputies are investigating a report that armed men broke into a northern Colorado home where medical marijuana was being grown, tied up two people, ransacked the residence and stole marijuana and guns.

Larimer County sheriff's spokeswoman Eloise Campanella says the home invasion was reported Friday afternoon northwest of Wellington, about 75 miles north of Denver.

The residents told investigators the break-in occurred several hours earlier. The reason for the delay in reporting it isn't clear.

Campanella says the residents couldn't identify the assailants.

In Washington state, a spokesman for the King County Sheriff's Office says deputies found 385 pot plants at the home of a medical marijuana activist who was in a shootout with robbers early Monday.
