Phoenix homeowner shoots intruder, pot plants found in house

PHOENIX — Phoenix police said a homeowner shot a man trying to
break into his bedroom in a home where officers later found numerous marijuana
plants.

Sgt. Tommy Thompson said officers responding to a call from the homeowner
Friday morning found a wounded man with his foot sticking through the bedroom
door at a home near 19th Avenue and Thunderbird Road. He is expected to survive.

Thompson said officers found approximately 50 marijuana plants and that
many plants exceed the limit allowed under the homeowner’s medical-marijuana
cultivation permit.

Police said prosecutors will decide whether to file charges regarding the marijuana
but that it appears the 54-year-old homeowner acted in self-defense in shooting
the intruder.

Identities haven’t been released.
