Suspicious fire in Sugar Creek nets two arrests

Two homeowners were arrested for possession of marijuana after emergency officials show up to fight a house fire.

Stafford fire and police responded to a fire call at a home in the 200 block of Brocket Place in Sugar Creek at about 7 a.m., last Wednesday morning. While emergency personnel were on the scene the homeowner and his pregnant wife were hauling property and trash bags out of the burning home. At one point the male homeowner threw a large black plastic bag over the fence into a neighbor’s backyard. Police saw the two neighbors talking but were more concerned with the immediate danger of the fire said officials. Eventually the couple were ordered out and away from the burning structure.

According to Stafford police spokesperson Raphael Virata, during the time the couple was being treated for smoke inhalation in an ambulance, neighbors called police over to show them what the homeowner was so intent on getting out of the burning house. It was stalks of marijuana and black trash bags containing marijuana.

The homeowner and the neighbor who took the trash bags from his yard into his home were both arrested for possession of marijuana. Based on what police discovered at the scene the couple’s home was a marijuana grow house. The couple have lived in the Sugar Creek residence for 10 years, it is unknown how long they have used their home from what police called a grow house.

Fire destroyed the home, it was a total loss, said Virata.
