Tampa Bay Times: Scrutiny in Pinellas pot-growing cases turns to whether deputies trespassed to get evidence


Pinellas County Sheriff's Department? 
LARGO — "Pinellas County sheriff's Deputy Kyle Alston was asked a disturbing question last month about two narcotics detectives: Had he ever seen them "climb over fences'' to gather evidence against suspected marijuana growers?
"Climb over fences'' is short-hand for trespassing, which is illegal and could jeopardize prosecutions.
Alston, who was under oath, refused to answer."
This is a follow-up story to another in which Pinellas Sheriff's detectives were posing as Progress Energy workers to gain access to homes without a warrant. Sheriff's detectives have also been monitoring energy consumption in neighborhoods using progress energy customer records without a warrant. Rightardia believes there is collusion between he sheriff's department and Progress Energy. 
The TT story is interesting because Pinellas county detectives have become 'pepping Tom's" who build platforms to looks over residential fences. They also peek into the windows of the unsuspecting home owners.
