Another Round of Marijuana Eradications

San Andreas, CA...From the Calaveras Sheriff's Office..."On November 1, 2018 the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office Marijuana Enforcement Team served a search warrant in the 5000 block of Del Sol Lane in San Andreas. Upon the arrival of the team, no persons or vehicles were present, although evidence was recovered from a travel trailer on site. 182 marijuana plants and 30 pounds of processed marijuana plants were seized and destroyed. The investigation is continuing.






Investigators immediately noted the presence of bags of trash and unsafe conditions. Specifically, electrical wire was found to be travelling through dry grass, above ground over the driveway and wired into a high voltage water heater which was placed outdoors. Several other electrical appliances were powered by wiring running through the grass. This created a potential fire hazard. Calaveras County Code Compliance was contacted for these issues."

      182 marijuana plants and 30 pounds of pot? I don't believe it. I think this story is a story. No pictures of any of those plants or the processed pot.

      Look at those planter boxes, over half full of weeds not even planted this year, the remainder look to have grape vines (?) growing in them.

      The whole place looks like no one has been there for months, and no pot on the site.

        Funny how rick only busts ethnic growers that are never on scene. Yet we still have remaining greenhouse local folks grows in our neighborhoods. Looking the other way?

          There have been plenty of busts on "non-ethnic" grows. The triple homicide location was busted this year, the spot off of rock creek was not an "ethnic" grow. These are just a couple of examples.

          Rick has been focused on organized crime and the worst violators. The truth is that someone doing a greenhouse or two is lower on the priority list than the groups who are planting over an acre. And for good reason too. A single greenhouse isn't going to have as much environmental impact or attract as many rip off artists as a place that produces hundreds of pounds.

          Just sayin.

        I believe you are right, and wrong.
        The site in the pic was a property that had signed up with the county, not sure if they were denied, accepted, whatever, before the ban.
        The picture in the article is on one end of the (20ish acre) property and was an active grow site last year with 4 plants per planter box. However, on the opposite far side of the property they also had another large grow area in the brush, gorilla-style, albeit on an adjoining property, but just barely. Both owners of the properties were Asian, for what it is worth.
        Looking at the satellite pics they grew there again (in the brush) this year, with a plant count matching the articles description.
        Why they did not post the pics of the actual grow area, who knows.

          Got an old refrigerator or a bunch of extra bagged or unbagged garbage to get rid of? Why drive all the way to the transfer station?

          Simply take it all over to your closest abandoned grow site and dump it off. Save you time and money and the BOS will be happy to send out a county crew to clean it up.

            Correction-that IS Oriental writing-not sure from what country or language so actually it was Oriental or Asians who were working that. They are allowed to bring so much things into this country you know even food products. I know this for a fact since I personally knew Asians who still had visas or passports to visit their homelands and bring back goods with them.
