On several occasions Detective Paul observed a MG convertible Md. tags CR-5748 park in front of 5333 MacArthur Blvd. and enter the red building. This auto is listed to a Samuel James Hagen of 1108 N. Tollgate Road, Bel Air, Maryland.
Detective Paul received information from the Bureau of Drug Abuse that in November of 1967 an illicit laboratory was searched on a warrant in Philadelphia, Pa. and a large quantity of drugs seized in the premises. Also found in the Philadelphia premises was a letter from a James Hagen of 1108 N.

During the surveillance Detective Paul observed a male subject leave the red house and walk over to a clump of grass where he bent down and then walked back into the red house.
Several of the autos which were seen to park in front of the premises were listed in the names of persons who are known users of marihuana.
