PAWTUCKET, R.I. -- There was no fire when the alarm went off at 95 Mulberry St. But warning bells sounded for investigators when a tenant wouldn't let them inside.
The reason, as the Pawtucket police discovered March 24: A good-sized marijuana growing operation, with illegal wiring between apartments.
Smoke and marijuana odor filled the hallway, police said.
James Packer, 35, allowed the narcotics squad into his third-floor apartment, where they found the first grow, the police said.
Jacob Archambault, 29, who'd tried to stop firefighters and police from entering, was in custody when investigators found a grow in his second-floor apartment.
Both claim to be licensed caregivers. Police say the amount of marijuana exceeds what caregivers can grow.
Both were charged with multiple offenses.
