Twitter leads authorities to potential illegal pot grow

FORT COLLINS COLORADOAN - A barrage of tweets and videos by a self-proclaimed “cannabis connoisseur” led to the arrest of one man and warrants for at least three others on charges of money laundering, tax evasion and illegal distribution of marijuana.

Larimer County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested Loveland resident Scott Alan Weaver, 44, in Berthoud on Oct. 19. Warrants are out for at least three other men — 26-year-old Joshua Cifuentes, 43-year-old Reynaldo Perez and 53-year-old Domingo Gonzalez — in relation to the case.

Police found close to 200 pounds of processed marijuana and close to 200 live marijuana plants at two houses associated with the four men, according to Weaver's arrest affidavit.

The investigation began in April 2016, after an investigator got a tip from the Colorado Information Analysis Center about a possible illegal marijuana grow in the 12000 block of West County Road 18E near Loveland.
