A Baltimore area man has more than just insurance claims to worry about after a car crashed into his home.

The crash revealed that Richard Marriott, 44, had an indoor marijuana farm, said police in Ellicott City, Md.

Marriott and another person were uninjured when a BMW driven by Bryan Bolster, 20, crashed into Marriott's house and burst into flames on Dec. 10. Bolster died in the crash.

Fire investigators were inspecting Marriott's home when they found the drugs. Police got a search warrant and found what they describe as an extensive growing operation, with nearly 20 large marijuana plants. Marriott was arrested and was being held Wednesday on $15,000 bond.
