MET Team Seizes Another Indoor Marijuana Grow

Valley Springs, CA...On 12-7-17 members of the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office Marijuana Enforcement Team served a search warrant for an illegal unregistered indoor marijuana grow at a residence in the 10000 block of Milton Road, Valley Springs. This operation was an independent investigation from the other indoor marijuana grow seized earlier in the day. Upon arrival, deputies found the entire house had been converted for marijuana cultivation.2,025 marijuana plants were seized and one subject arrested. The plants varied in size from small seedlings to tall mature marijuana plants.




Sian Huang (age 28) was arrested for 11358(c)H&S-illegal marijuana cultivation and 11366H&S-maintaining a place for the purpose of unlawfully selling, giving away, or using any controlled substance (commonly known as “operating a drug house”). Huang spoke with broken English and although listed his address at the Milton Road house, he had a New York Identification card in his possession. He was booked into the Calaveras County Jail with $30,000 bail.

I wonder how the CCSO is well funded enough now to find these grows. I don't ever remember hearing about indoor busts before. I wonder if maybe they are getting funds from measure C tax payments?
Woah!
Regulation at work!
Just like the honest growers have been saying all along.
"Tax us to fund enforcement."
Even the measure d folks knew it could work way back when. With an industry the size of what measure d would have given the county I bet we could have busted all the illegal grows by now.
Let's hope the BOS allows for a healthy functioning industry to continue so we can keep houses and neighborhoods safe from the devils lettuce.

    How did law enforcement find the indoor grow? It is very likely they were tipped off by neighbors who are objecting to having this kind of operation near their home(s). This doesn't cost a dime and isn't rocket science. Please do not make the mistake of connecting law enforcement with marijuana money. It makes no sense to have more marijuana to fight marijuana. Good try.

Just an aside to county HR - given the current state of affairs, extra hiring points for knowing Spanish and Hmong.

          Spoken like a true libtard. Let me guess because you entitled. Legit business in Murphys. Not a corrupt non tax paying cash grab. Like this mess. All ends up in another state like Florida and every state back east. Burn it ban get a real job. Hope you wasted your money on that weed. Maybe we can use it to make paper for real workers.

here ya go,maybe the Sheriff's Office should go into the cultivation business, with all the eradication's from these illegal grows just think of how well funded they could be and the plants are already growing!! Would not have to rely on the growers to pay taxes, they could collect their own!! this county believes in being in the dope business anyway, just ask the BOS past and some present!! The future of society, make more money at the cost of the citizenry by keeping them either drunk, stoned, stupid and unaware, what a great world this has become!!!!

      Avenue A in Mountain Ranch has been and open and conspicuous pot grow for 12 years that I know of. They must be grandfathered in. There's never been an enforcement action there even though it's visible from Mountain Ranch Road.

      Some people are just exempt. Ever wonder how you could become exempt from the law?

Do the math: d i c k weed risks $12K cash, $18K for rent, $3K for a $30K bail, steals power from his neighbors, and some effort to gross $600K a year.

If you have no moral compass, this is a no brainer!

We have to change his equation:

Get caught, no bail, just a bullet to the head.
Complicit land lord loses property by confiscation.
Cash and other assets seized are split between the county, the neighbors,
and whoever dropped the dime on his sorry a s s - all tax free.

End of problem. So simple even a BofS could grok!

    Well, you have a point. The $30,000 bail is laughable. Why isn't in commensurate to the crime? Make it significant enough to hurt.

Send the MET Team to the corner of Main and Parrotts Ferry in Vallecito, the green house and garage with all the windows covered, and cars there mostly after the sun goes down, by the way, the cars I see have out of state plates! Might be a nice, little catch, go get-em!
