Petaluma police are searching for three burglars who broke into a home with a marijuana garden and stole plants, a safe and maybe a gun.
Petaluma Lt. Tim Lyons said the burglars first broke into a car parked in front of the Lindberg Lane home, off of Lakeville Street. They used the garage door opener to get into the garage and home.
Officers called to the house by witnesses at about 4:20 p.m. Saturday found remnants of a garden inside the home.
Witnesses old police several people had been coming and going from the house in the three days prior to the burglary, said Lyons.
Officers alerted city officials to the indoor marijuana garden for investigation of possible city code violations.
Police released a photo of the burglar's car and Lyons asked anyone with information to contact Officer Farinha at (707) 778-4372.
