At least one City of Hartford employee may be taking the recent seminars held by Councilwoman Wildalis Bermudez on starting your own Marijuana business a little too literally.
Elon Trader, a City of Hartford DPW employee was arrested this afternoon after his Main Street apartment was found on fire and his marijuana grow operation ignited . The fire is believed to have been caused by electric grow lights and heaters used in the operation.
The investigation into the operation is ongoing by the Hartford Police Department, the Connecticut State Police and the DEA.
Hartford Fire Department members who battled the fire in the apartment were reported to be very relaxed for the rest of the evening and were indulging in large quantities of potato chips and other munchie type snacks. Any random drug testing scheduled has been put on hold temporarily
