MODESTO - He's known for being "Grandpa Wayne" to all the kids in his neighborhood. But a letter Wayne Seawright received Memorial Day weekend accused him of something shady -- threatening him and telling him to lawyer up.
Seawright, 80, and his wife Tommy have lived in their Modesto home for more than 50 years. Their backyard is part sculpture garden park, part rock garden and part vegetable garden.
Imagine his surprise when he received this letter in the mail from Stanislaus Drug Enforcement Agency and Modesto Police Department.
"It says, 'office has received info that the above referenced property is being used to cultivate an distribute marijuana,'" Seawright read from the letter.
The letter stated that violation can result in imprisonment and told violators to get a lawyer.
