Guam - Trial continued today for Roy Pablo, the former police officer who along with his common law wife and her brother were arrested late last year accused of operating a fully functional marijuana grow operation in their Dededo home.

On the stand today, investigator Carl Nesmith who interviewed Pablo following his arrest stated Pablo admitted to smoking pot since high school and that he grew his own stuff which he learned how to from magazines and the internet.

When Nesmith asked if Pablo was into dealing drugs, Pablo responded "No. I'm a police officer. I know my limits" but admitted that he was aware his wife, Ah Rum Kim, dealt drugs and used the profits to pay for their utilities.

Pablo also admitted to police that he owned eleven plants with each plant harvesting up to two ounces.

Trial for Pablo will resume on Wednesday at 9 a.m. before Judge Alberto Lamorena.
