Bail Bondsman Helps San Jose Authorities

A bails bondsman searching for a bailee helped police land two San Jose residents who allegedly operated an indoor pot farm, officers said today.

The bondsman - who police did not identify - on Tuesday night was trying to track down someone who skipped out on bail when he thought he spied marijuana plants growing inside a home where he believed the suspect once lived.

He called police at around 10:30 p.m. to report his find. When officers pulled up to the home on the 5300 block of Fraschini Circle, they said could smell marijuana from outside the house, officer Jermaine Thomas said.

They talked to the people in the home, who agreed to let officers search the place. Inside, investigators allegedly found more than 1,300 plants in different stages of growth nestled throughout the entire home, Thomas said.

Police arrested the man and woman in the home. They booked Toan Thi Phan, 49, of San Jose, and Long Giang La, 52, of San Jose, into Santa Clara County Jail on suspicion of growing marijuana, Thomas said.

The person who skipped out on the bail bond wasn't inside in the house.
