Police discover malnourished puppy, pot after standoff

By Chris De Benedetti, from Mercury News

Authorities discovered about 240 marijuana plants and a malnourished pit bull puppy in a residence after a three-hour standoff Thursday, police said.
Officers did not find anyone inside the home and no arrests were made, Lt. Jeff Tudor said.
The incident began about 3:15 p.m., when officers responded to a call reporting that three men, including two who had guns, ran inside a home on the 2000 block of Fairbanks Street, west of Doolittle Drive, he said.
Officers, including the San Leandro police SWAT team and hostage negotiators, surrounded the house and multiple attempts were made to contact the people believed inside, police said.
About 5:45 p.m., officers entered the home through a garage door, but no one was there, he said.
The puppy was taken to an emergency pet clinic for treatment, police said.
