The bellow quotation is from Peter Benchley’s Jaws:
“…; when, very rarely, a couple of predators from Queens would lurk in the dark side streets and mug passersby; and when, about twice a month in a summer, enough evidence having accumulated, the police would feel obliged to stage a pot bust at one of the huge waterfront homes”.
I would like to know the meaning of the phrase “to stage a pot bust”.
All that I could find about the verb “to stage” in Merriam-Webster Dictionary, please see # 2.
Regarding “pot bust”, anything on the internet is related to marijuana.
Would you please explain the meaning of the phrase: “to stage a pot bust”?
