DIAMOND BAR, Calif. — Diamond Bar Mayor Steve Tye never noticed anything unusual about the upscale, three-bedroom suburban home a block from his house.
That is until Wednesday, when Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies burst in and found the entire house had been converted into a massive indoor marijuana farm, complete with elaborate irrigation system and overhead lights on timers that were hooked up illegally to bypass meter readings.
