A half million dollar marijuana grow was discovered in a Lathrop home Wednesday afternoon along with the body of a dead man, a Sheriff’s spokesman reported Thursday morning.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call of a man down in the 500 block of Cold Springs Street inside of a residence.  The man’s death is being investigated by detectives awaiting an autopsy and toxicology results. 

The deceased is currently listed as a John Doe pending further investigation and pending identification and notification to the next of kin.  The San Joaquin County Metro Narcotics Task Forde has taken over the investigation of the indoor marijuana grow with the discovery of the 1,000 marijuana plants in various stages of growth.
