The problem started when a Connecticut man called 911 at 8 p.m. on Thursday and asked how much trouble he could get into by growing one marijuana plant, police said.

The dispatcher said he could get arrested.

Caller Robert Michelson replied, “thank you,” and hung up, police said.

You can hear the entire 911 call here.

But, he’d made the call from his own home – 192 Waterville Road in Farmington -- so it did not take long for police to find him and discover for themselves that the 21-year-old man was growing marijuana, police said.

Michelson admitted to spending a lot of money online to buy everything he needed to grow marijuana, including the seeds, police said.

Narcotics officers found a small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia designed for growing and smoking marijuana.

Michelson was released on $5,000 bond. As he left the police station, he gave the dispatchers two middle fingers.

“Presumably for doing such a good job,” police said.
