Instead of beholding the beautiful bounty or wondering if this, too, was a magical feral patch, he called the cops. Thus the nickname.
Brea Police say their detectives later found what was thought to be a pipe bomb next to the patch, so the sheriff's bomb squad was alerted and part of Brea Canyon Road was closed . . . for hours and hours.
Turns out the device was not a bomb.
Police say they have yet to pin the patch, whose plants would reportedly fetch $20,000 on the street, on anyone yet.
