South Fulton police discovered a house believed to be involved in marijuana trafficking after a home invasion call.

Police respond to South Fulton home invasion, find house filled with pot, weapons

Police received a call about a home invasion in South Fulton on Tuesday morning. However, the home’s owner may face charges.

Officers discovered marijuana and weapons inside the house in the 400 block of Espana Street, South Fulton police said in a Facebook post. Police believe the home was being used for drug distribution.

The department received the home invasion call about 5 a.m., and the caller said two people had broken into the home, firing gunshots, the post said. The people fled before law enforcement arrived, and it appears no one was injured.

Officers smelled a strong odor of raw marijuana coming from the house, and the drugs and weapons were seized once the department obtained a search warrant, the post said. 

It’s unclear whether marijuana was being grown at the house or if it was allegedly just for distribution. The amount of drugs and weapons seized was also not provided.

There were other people at the home, but the homeowner had left before police arrived, Sgt. Jubal Rogers told AJC.com. No one has been arrested at this time, but charges are pending.
