Photo oops: Instagram pics lead to arrest of N.J. pot grower

SICKLERVILLE, N.J.- A New Jersey man was arrested for growing marijuana at an abandoned home after posting multiple pictures of the plants on Instagram, reports CBS Philly.

Police say the Instagram photos included GPS data that allowed them to track down the improvised grow house.

Investigators conducted surveillance of the property during the week of July 13, and allegedly caught 20-year-old Connor Kennedy tending to seven marijuana plants.

Kennedy also allegedly posted to Instagram a number of photos of himself with the marijuana plants, police said.

He was arrested and faces unspecified charges.
