Upon arrival, the 45-year-old woman told deputies her 41-year-old boyfriend told her he wanted to break up and, out of anger, she cut herself on her neck and wrist with a switchblade knife. She said they fought, but would not give deputies more details.

A deputy knocked on the spare bedroom door several times and told the man to come out. He eventually came out of the room and the deputy saw power cords leading into a closed closet. The bedroom was hot and smelled like marijuana, according to a police report.
The man said he told his girlfriend he wanted to break up and she “freaked out.” She punched him in the face, breaking his nose and giving him two black eyes.
The woman said her boyfriend was growing marijuana plants in the spare bedroom closet. She also said there was more marijuana in her bedroom.
Deputies searched the home and found 15 medium-sized marijuana plants and 15 starter plants as well as growing equipment.

A $6 grab

They asked him if he had any money, he told them no. One of the men said, “I have a gun and I’ll shoot you.” The victim then pulled his cell phone, wallet and $6 cash from his pockets.
The men took the $6 and told the victim to turn off his cell phone and not call police. They then walked to a white car and drove away. The victim called 911 from his cell phone.
