PTC police credit man for big pot arrest — his own
‘Check out my YouTube Page’ – cops did, found online pics of 33 marijuana plants in man's house
A Peachtree City man was arrested on felony marijuana charges June 13 after he invited an officer to “check out his YouTube channel” which showed a marijuana-growing operation at his residence that contained 33 marijuana plants.
Zachary A. Peak, 29, of Paddock Trail in Glenloch Village, was charged with manufacturing, distribution and possession of marijuana, possession of drug-related objects and indecent exposure, according to police and jail records.
Police spokesman Mark Brown said officers on June 13 responded to the area of the Glenloch Recreation Center for an indecent exposure call.
During the course of the conversation with the investigating officer, Peak invited the officer to “check out his YouTube channel,” Brown said.
“The officer accepted the invitation and viewed the subject’s YouTube channel which was open to the public,” said Brown. “The officer viewed an obvious marijuana-growing operation on the YouTube channel and clearly identified the residence, the suspect and his mother. The investigating officer presented this information to a magistrate judge and a search warrant was secured.”
Brown said a search of the home revealed 33 marijuana plants which were seized along with equipment used in the cultivation of marijuana.
Brown said the indecent exposure charge came after Peak took off his clothes at the pool, adding that no children were present and he was clothed when officers arrived.
