Vermont police searching for a wayward moose in Burlington ended up stumbling across a marijuana-growing operation and made an arrest. Police said they were called Saturday morning to assist Vermont Fish and Wildlife wardens who were searching for a moose that had been wandering through a neighborhood. While helping in the search, police say they came across the pot plants in a shed behind a home. After getting a search warrant, they seized 32 plants and some processed marijuana. Police arrested Joshua Brunelle, 29, who lived in the home. It was not clear if the moose had been found.
