Las Vegas police raided a marijuana grow house this week after receiving help from the unlikely source: the grower who was posting weekly updates on YouTube bragging about his operation and showing off his crop.
Jason Pelletier, 33, and and his wife, Stephanie, 35, were arrested on Friday by Las Vegas Metropolitan Police after being tipped off to the videos, reports KLAS.
According to authorities, Pelletier was posting the videos on YouTube under the name ‘Buddynuggets78.’
Police say they were able to the names and videos as a starting point to track down the home Pelletier and his wife had rented.
“we were able to research it,” said Lt. Laz Chavez.”Utilize some electronic equipment that we have, as well as just old school surveillance and help from the community to identify the residents.”
Chavez called posting the videos, “Not very smart,” adding “In my opinion, the most arrogant of all of them that I have seen.’
In the videos, Pelletier walks around the grow room, explaining his water and power usage while identifying the different strains, noting when they would be available for harvesting and then for sale.
Police removed over two hundred plants from the home.
Police said Peletier has a history with guns and drugs, calling him a “hardened criminal.”
Charges have yet to be filed against Pelletier and his wife.

‘Rudy is a lousy lawyer’: Ex-prosecutor reveals why nobody will hire Giuliani for legal work
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is getting rich selling his access to the White House, in spite of being a "lousy" attorney, according to a former federal prosecutor.
Paul Butler was interviewed on MSNBC by Kendis Gibson on Saturday.
"One issue is that representing Donald Trump has been great business for Rudy Giuliani," Butler noted.
"Since he’s started to be his defense attorney, there’s a huge demand for Rudy’s services. And let's face it, Rudy is a lousy lawyer. We’ve all seen him go on TV and by the time he goes off TV his client is in more trouble. So people probably aren’t hiring him for his legal skills, they want his access," he explained.
